God's Gift of Forgiveness

Our Father gives His Sons and Daughters great gifts, which cannot be earned. What is one of them?

Life: breath of life.

1Cor. 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God,

Have to take and use the gift.

Noah walked with God, believed God, built an ark and gathered animals.

Had to take the gift and get out of town.

         Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.

            Let them not rule over me;
            Then I will be blameless,
         And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.

Job 33:24 Then let him be gracious to him, and say,
         ‘Deliver him from going down to the pit,
         I have found a ransom’;

         According to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions.
Psa. 51:2           Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity
         And cleanse me from my sin.
