In this short sermon, we are going to look at what the bible says about if my people who are called by my name as recorded in 2 Chronicles 7:14.
“If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.2 Chronicles 7:14
The meaning of if my people who are called by my name
Today in our devotional, God calls upon those of us Christians who are still living in sin to make a U-turn and return back to him.
But many feel that there are sins that God cannot forgive, and so our question today is Does God forgive every sin?
Yes! God forgives every sin; if only you will repent, that is why He said in the scripture below:
“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the LORD, “though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.Isaiah 1:18.
But the main point here is that your repentance has to precede God’s forgiveness.
In other words, you must be willing to go to Him and seek repentance before you can get the forgiveness of your sins.
Throughout the scriptures, God has always shown Himself to be a merciful and compassionate Father, who is always willing and ready to forgive whatever sin the humans He created commit.
He even promises never to forsake them in their sinfulness.
They refused to obey, and they were not mindful of your wonders that you did among them. But they hardened their necks, and in their rebellion they appointed a leader to return to their bondage. But you are God, ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, abundant in kindness, and did not forsake them.(Nehemiah 9:17)
For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon you.(Psalm 86:5)
Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord is very compassionate and merciful.(James 5:11)
So today you must overlook whatever sin you have committed and approach God to receive your pardon.
