January 20 – Day 6: The Lord’s Prayer
Get Your Heart Right
“But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.” (1 John 1:9)
“…forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors…”
GET YOUR HEART RIGHT WITH GOD AND PEOPLE
We can’t come to God and think we always do everything right. It’s important to recognize that we have sin in our lives, and it’s even more important to confess that sin and seek God’s forgiveness.
In the same way that God forgives us, we must also forgive those who have hurt us or wronged us. Even if they don’t ask for forgiveness.
Today, ask God to check your heart and motives. Receive his forgiveness for any area that he brings to mind. Then forgive anyone who has offended you in any way. You can even forgive people in advance.
think about it:
Things I need to be forgiven for:
People I need to forgive:
What is a matter that God brought to mind where you need to forgive or be forgiven? Write out your prayer to get your heart right with God and others.
