rejoice to be forgiven

Ephesians 1


In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

This is a great encouragement, that can cheer us up when we're feeling depressed about things going on in life. If we believe in Jesus, not only can we be forgiven of sins, but we have been forgiven. We have redemption and are clean in His sight, by His own power, which cannot be thwarted.

If we've come to God by faith, and are continuing to seek Him, we don't have to feel dark or dirty all the time and worry about whether we might have done something wrong that we don't know about or can't repent of. When we can realize that we have done something wrong, we do need to stop and make sure that we fully repent of it... But otherwise, we can like in the light, in joy and peace, realizing that our hearts are washed clean and we can be right in God's sight. Praise the Lord!
