Acts 13:38- 39 “Therefore, my brothers (and sisters), I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through Him every one who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the law of Moses.”
Understanding God’s forgiveness
Imagine an airport, passenger standing by the carousel waithing for luggage, everyone hoping to recognise their own.
You need to claim your own luggage. You mustn’t go away with someone else’s.
It would be foolish to collect every suitcase. It woul be even more foolish to stagger along carrying them all and ignoring the trolley provided.
Think of each case filled with individual guilt. You must clain your own guilty baggage. You mustn’t clutter yourself by trying to be responsible for someone else’s wrong; that is false guilt.
Pick up your own suitcase from the carousel, load it immediately on to a trolley that has a huge red cross painted on its side, and Jesus is standing there waiting to push it away.
