The word for today is sin.
“‘Come now, let us reason together,’ says the Lord. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool’” (Isa. 1:18).
“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me” (Ps. 51:10).
“Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body that you should obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God” (Rom. 6:11-13).
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom. 6:23).
“My little children, I am writing these things to you that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world” (1 John 2:1-2).
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).
“I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you” (Isa. 44:22).
“Oh, what joy for those whose rebellion is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight! Yes, what joy for those whose record the LORD has cleared of sin, whose lives are lived in complete honesty!” (Ps. 32:1-2 NLT).
I feel like singing the third verse of “It Is Well with My Soul”: “My sin— O the bliss of this glorious tho’t—My sin not in part, but the whole—Is nailed to His cross, and I bear it no more! Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul! It is well, with my soul. It is well, it is well with my soul.”
Prayer: Lord, thank You that You are the one who blots out my transgressions and remembers my sins no more.
