Start Over


If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)

  • All of us must learn to cope with defeat and self-condemnation following a spiritual collapse.
     
  •  But how can we recover from grieving God and others, along with disappointing ourselves?
     
  •  The apostle John wrote, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”.
     
  •  God forgives us because Jesus Christ paid the price for our sins.
     
  •  God’s pardon sets us free to begin again.
     
  •  God’s pardon makes us focus on today’s opportunity rather than yesterday’s defeat.
     
  •  God’s faithful cleansing allows us to start over with a pure heart.
     
  •  So, instead of living in the shadows of yesterday, let us walk in the light of today and the hope of tomorrow.
