Remission - The Great Promise


"To give His people the knowledge of salvation through the remission of their sins" (Lk.1:77).

In medicine, the term remission is used to describe a condition when the symptoms of a disease have abated or subsided. Signs of the disease may never show up again. In our religious lives, remission holds a prominent place too. Jesus told us about that place when in Matt.26:28 he was gathered with His disciples at what we call the Last Supper. "This is my blood of the covenant which is poured out for many for the remission of sins." If you don't read the word remission very often in your Bible, the key synonym often used in many translations is forgiveness. Jesus taught that remission of sin was to be preached to all nations. ((Lk.24:45-47) So why is this remission thing so important to us? It is only through remission (forgiveness) of our wrongs that we can be set free from the guilt of sin. The guilt of knowing that we have done wrong and the desire to rid ourselves of the baggage that comes along with it. Now I want us all to know that this remission is not sprinkled down on everyone like fairy dust. God has always wanted us to be under His wonderful umbrella of grace, but there are some conditions that must be met. There is some obedience that must be accomplished first. This obedience first entails our belief that Jesus is His Son. Then we must make a couple of commitments. Peter said it all in Acts 2:38...."Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins" Through obedience and submission, we get this most wonderful gift that frees of from the guilt of sin.....remission.....

Have a great start to your week...It would be fantastic to begin it with a RAK or two.... Love mark Phil.4:11
