Can I Earn My Forgiveness?

So many people suffer from guilt. It need not be a great crime like murder that troubles, but it can be the little wrongs they have done.

Their past haunts them.
They suffer silently as their minds torture them.
They feel someone accusing them all the time.
Unable to open up to anyone they carry untold secrets till they die.

But there is peace to be found with God. There is no demand God makes. Except that you have a broken and contrite heart. Surprising; isn’t it?

He knows that not one of us can find the solution for what troubles our innermost hearts and minds.

He simply says, “Look to me.” On the cross the innocent Lamb of God bled and died for the forgiveness of your sins. The blood of Jesus has the power to cleanse and purify from all sin. One look of believing faith is all that is needed.
