Now, imagine that someone comes and cleanses your home. Each corner is shining and as you enter in, the whole house smells a wonderful freshness! Everybody likes this and especially as no effort was done! Right?
It is written:
“…make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.”
The above verses say a lot and we can discuss all elements told. However, today we focus at the fact that we have been cleansed from our past sins.
IT IS A FACT! It is not a subject in debate. Whoever believes that Jesus Christ is his/her Lord and savior, is absolutely cleansed from past sins. Clearly stated!
In addition, it was done through the blood that Jesus Christ shed for us on the cross. Our cleansing was freely given to us. We ought at least to receive this freedom in a humble way and never forget what happened. We ought to believe that took place and that we have been cleansed and nothing from our past remains in or with us!
As simple and smoothly as that!
