About remembering Christ forgives you…
John 3:17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. (NIV)
not approve of sinful thoughts and behavior.
does not approve, does not like, does not want, and detests sinful behavior,
Christ still forgives you. In forgiving you, Christ does not give you a license
to sin. When Christ forgives you and you truly accept His forgiving love in
humility and contrition, you do not want to ever sin again. The forgiving love
of Christ is not meant to be some kind of temporary eraser wiping out your sins
to make you feel better so you can sin again. The forgiving love of Christ is
meant to change you and make you want to turn away permanently from ever
thinking or doing sinful things again. When you fully accept Christ's forgiving
love, you are not held prisoner to guilt or shame. Christ wants you to be free
of the prison of your sinful past.
