You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.
Colossians 2:13–14 NLT
When I preach on our total forgiveness in Christ, someone will inadvertently ask, if all my sins are forgiven, that means my future sins are too. But how can my future sins be forgiven?
In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus went through His valley moment.
“And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.”
—Luke 22:44 NKJV
The word “agony” in Greek is “agonia”, which typifies intense emotional or mental exercise.
