The Hope of Forgiveness
"O that we could stop carrying the remains of who we were" Tyler Knott Gregson
Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Psalm 32:1 NIV
Forgiven for abortion free and clear all because of Christ, is such an incredible gift! It truly is Good News. It is forgiveness based solely on the person and finished work of Jesus on my behalf!
The Good News is not a set of rules to follow but a Savior to trust and receive and yes have the privilege and honor to follow. It is an invitation that keeps on giving!
Billy Graham was asked if God will forgive murder. Question: Dear Dr Graham: I've been in jail for almost 20 years for killing a man during an armed robbery. The chaplain here says God will forgive me, but I can't make myself believe it. I know I don't deserve any mercy, either from the courts or from God. Isn't killing someone the unforgivable sin? --WW
He wrote the answer in his column: "Dear WW: Murder is a terrible crime--but no, it isn't the unforgivable sin. The only sin God cannot forgive is the sin of turning our backs on Him and refusing to accept His forgiveness."
"After God has shown His friendship, loyalty, and unconditional love-sacrifice at the greatest cost--- it is unimaginable to shun His gift, resist Him, reject and betray His goodness. To do so carries its own result of death forever-permanent eternal separation from God.
Matthew 23:37 KJV: "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stones them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not"
Christ wept over Jerusalem. He knew the hearts of the people He came to save. He knew they were murderers; they had killed the prophets of God...yet He longed to bring them under His saving wing like a mother her babes---but they would not come. Their rejection broke Jesus' heart. Knowing he would die a terrible death and pour out all He had for them, yet they would not receive His gifts or receive Him."

Jesus, The Son of God and Son of Man gave the greatest love of all, His life for us as His friends and also to his enemies!
John 15:13 (NIV) Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
Romans 5:8-10 (ESV)
but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.
GOOD NEWS! Please SPREAD THE JOY! So many post abortive men and women need to hear this great forgiveness, this great transfer, this great way to Heaven, into the Kingdom of Light, as a child of God! So many gifts given at Salvation.
I am not ashamed of the Gospel for it is the power of God for salvation for any who will believe! Romans 1:16. Won't You be His? Believe!
