Not Guilty…..(Quest Post)


image

How can this be?
Having gone through the long list
Of all the wrongs I have committed
I thought I was guilty
It should have been me
I haven’t been compassionate
Haven’t cared at all
Had master’s in anger
A PhD in unforgiveness
Ever protective of everything
But never careful about anything

What kind of grace is this?
I should be​… No, I must be made to answer for my wrongs( so i thought)
I sinned…He didn’t
Why did he have to pay?
Still don’t get it?
My heart is in a thousand pieces
Yet again, I am having another thought
Maybe He does love me…”Of course he does love me
How do I explain this amazing grace?
Mum always says “He’s slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sins….
It’s all beginning to make sense now

I didn’t meet all the requirements to be forgiven
Jesus did all that on my behalf
I know am forgiven
I am not ashamed anymore
It doesn’t matter what happens now
All I remember
All he said was “If you love me, don’t let go. You are free”
I am not letting go
“Not Guilty”…..

I came home to meet this note on my bed. It was drafted by my little God-daughter( scattered, I had to​ put them together). I still can’t comprehend how she came up with these words… She’s just 12years old.  What wrong could she have committed at age 12?( Smiles).

Well, my precious baby I know you will read this sooner than later, just know am very proud of you. More grace I pray for you.
This reminds me of a song by  ” Mandisa- Not Guilty”

    1. Thank you Victor for your kind contribution. It is indeed an heavenly verdict, and we have the authority to declare it because Jesus lives. It’s so kind of you to drop by and share with us. Have a great weekend.

  1. What a Lovely message Whitney from your God-daughter by what she wrote she does indeed understand forgiveness and it is very True our Past Sins are forgiven when we repent and believe in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and we are also set free from the Slavery of Sin so we no longer Sin when we are Born Again.

    Romans 3 24-25 Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His Righteousness for the remission of our Past Sins through the forbearance of God.

    1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin because God’s seed remains in him he cannot go on sinning because he has been Born of God.

    John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who Sins is a slave to Sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

    Romans 6:18-20 Being then made free from Sin, ye became the Servants of Righteousness.

    Christian Love Always – Anne.

      1. Wishing you Christian Love and Blessings for Easter Whitney, we remember at this time the great Sacrifice Jesus our Lord and Saviour made for us and our Abba Father who allowed Him because of His great Love for us, just as a hatched egg brings New Life, so does Jesus bring Eternal New Life when we believe in Him.

        God’s Peace – Anne.

    1. Thanks dear. Happy Easter too my dear Anne. It’s a season to remember. Our Lord’s sacrifice wasn’t in vain and that is the prove we have that we are free. He reigns and forever he will reign.
