Read (from the New Living Translation)

1 John 1:9

9 But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

Psalm 32:1

1Oh, what joy for those
whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sin is put out of sight!

Go Deep

We know forgiving others important… but what about you? Do you believe you’re forgiven of your faults? Let the lyrics of Crowder’s song “Forgiven” sink in today.

We asked him what inspired the song from his own life and he said this: “I’ve been married for 20 years. One of the best things about marriage is it’s like the best mirror you’ll ever see yourself in because you’ll see all your faults. Then at the same time, it’s the best version of God in real live flesh because they see you too with all your faults. And to be loved and accepted in spite of your faults that are known – ah, it’s amazing! I have experienced it so often in real life.

I hope that someone can hear simple melody and a few words strung together and the story of God attached to it and understand and know what I have felt in real life and been rescued… I know what forgiveness is because I’ve felt it in real life. And this song to me has a ton of that real life in it.”

I love this song, and the way it reminds me that there is nothing I’ve ever done, or will do, that could cause my Father God to love me less than completely!

I think I need to listen to that song a lot. I think I’m having trouble with believing the depth of my own forgiveness and that is why I have trouble letting go and forgiving other people. Thank you for your song. Music is easier for me to understand than reading the Bible sometimes

So glad that this song is helping to have a better understanding of forgiveness! Isn’t that a blessing in and of itself, that God gives people music to help us understand Him more!

i love this song! This is one of the areas the devil tries to get me down is about my past that it isn’t forgiven that I didn’t ask the right way so God isn’t forgiven me. I need reminded often that God has forgiven me and I get that reminder though music on WAY-FM Clarksville,TN so thank you!!

I struggle with the concept of forgiveness possibly because I have not experienced it in life like he’s talking about here. My marriage is essentially over because of mistakes I’ve made and lack of forgiveness. I am a completely changed person but, without forgiveness there’s nothing.
Can I really be forgiven? Made innocent? I don’t know.

Just know that there is nothing that you can do that will cause God to love you less or more than He already does. He loves you unconditionally and His love never ends. I hope you can learn to forgive yourself and know that God will forgive you, friend.
God bless.

I love this song. I wish I could forgive myself. I live in guilt…..I think I hold onto it for false”control” of the situation.

Beautiful song! P

I have accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and I know that he loves me and forgives me of all my sins, but I am still very hard on myself when I sin. I am my toughest critic, and sometimes my own worst enemy.
Does anyone else struggle with this?

Yes I feel almost every day that the things I’ve done in the past I can’t forgive myself of and because of all I’ve done it’s hard to understand how Jesus forgives me when I can’t

Cody D & Johnny, Forgiving ourselves can be one of the hardest things! But we are forgiven! Be sure to check out Betty Rock’s Story tomorrow, it goes into more about just that!

I love this song. It paints the whole picture of our lives and what we have done but yet the forgiveness and love that was poured out to us through Jesus even though none of us deserve it.

We are forgiven when we accept Jesus as our Savior-all past, present, and future sins. Isaiah 1:18-19. Our loving Father asks you and me to come and reason with Him! He tells us we have been washed white as snow. Our enemy wants each of us to think otherwise, he wants us to believe his lies, that Jesus is not enough, that He can never accept us because of what we have done. Satan is our accuser and the father of lies.
You and I are forgiven, dearly loved children of our Heavenly Father. Just like Crowder sings…FORGIVEN.

Love Crowder’s music. He sings simply and seeetly.

One of my fave verses, Romans 8:38- nothing we have done, will do…. will separate us from God’s love for us.
We are forgive .
So undeservingly forgiven

God is great. And his heart is as big as the sky. We are loved and blessed. God is good. And no matter what we do or think he forgives. What a glorious moment to be loved. And to love others as imperfect as we are. God is so incredibly accepting. And good.

I am a huge fan of David Crowder. I got to meet him WinterJam 2016. Such a down to earth and humble man of God. This song reminds me that I am forgiven. I had a lot of guilt and shame from my past. It was a struggle to not only forgive others but to forgive myself. I finally one day said , if God forgives you then who am I to not forgive myself? Thank you so much for sharing this song, it is a reminder for me every day, that I am FORGIVEN!
