John 1:29 The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! Heb 9:28 So Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many... 10:10 By which will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
If a Christian becomes careless and sins by mistake, if he is overtaken by sins, what should he do? How can he recover his fellowship with God? To take care of this matter, we must first realize that the Lord Jesus has borne all our sins on the cross. All the sins which we have committed, as well as those we are committing and will commit during our whole life, were borne by the Lord on the cross. However, on the day we believed in the Lord, under God's light we only saw the sins that we had committed before we had believed. A man can only be conscious of the sins which God shines His light upon; he cannot feel the sins which he has not yet committed. Therefore, the actual sins the Lord Jesus bore on the cross are more than the sins that we see. The Lord Jesus bore all of our sins on the cross, but we see only the sins which we have committed. We must realize that even the sins that we are not conscious of are included in the Lord Jesus' redemption. In other words, the Lord took away the sins of our whole life on the cross. Although, when we first believed in the Lord, we only felt the forgiveness of our past sins, in actuality, the Lord took away all our sins, even those we commit after we are saved. We must understand this fact before we can understand how to recover our fellowship with God. (c) 2007 Living Stream Ministry.
