October 23 – A Clean Slate

October 23 - A Clean Slate

Forgiveness is more than just the simple undoing of our wrongs. It’s an immeasurable cleansing of the residue that lingers in our memory; the assurance given every time we assemble in the Name of Jesus. This message explores the healing power of Confession, and the clean slate of Christ’s forgiveness.

“He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” ~ Luke 18:9-14
