Dailies-In His Word
Saul was on his way to kill the people we call Christians. He was about to utterly destroy the people he thought were doing the wrong thing and then Jesus stepped in his path. His life was changed forever because of the road to Damascus experience. Many of our lives have been influenced by this and personally I can relate to the man we now call Paul. I thought I was living a right life until I found out that I was doing it all wrong and that I could not be good enough. Only God is good enough to save us from our sins, and yes we all have sin. No one can never ever lie; we can’t always be completely truthful because we will hurt someone if we are. Each of us has said something or chosen not to forgive someone. If I do not forgive then how can I be forgiven? When God brings things back to our memory from what we call our BC days 
(before Christ took the wheel to our lives) a past hurt or wrong committed against us we need to forgive that person or we are holding it in our heart. If we are holding back a portion of our heart for this then how can we give it all to Jesus?
If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness 1 John 1:9
Paul realized his sin in persecuting the people of God, and was repentant and forgiven.
...to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence. Ephesians 1:6-8
In the same way we are forgiven, He throws out our sin as far as the east is from the west. Nothing can take that from us. We need to allow God in, to give Him our whole heart; then He will cleanse us from sin and make us right in His eyes. The only ones that matter.
Heavenly Father, thank you for forgiving us all from all we have done or thought to do. Forgiveness is something we don’t deserve yet you gave it to us anyway. We love you for this and so much more. In Jesus name, amen
