Simple Sunday Thoughts #6 - Forgiveness




Like a fresh spring rain, forgiveness washes everything clean, and restores life.


 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1John 1:9 

Humbly go to God and repent, and He will cleanse us from ALL sin.  Amazing!

  As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. 
Psalm 103:12


God does such a good job of forgiving us that He removes the sin as far as the east is from the west.  That's mind-boggling!!  It can't be fathomed!  But it's true!

  For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. Heb 8:12

God won't hold our sins over our heads and remind us of them every time we pray to Him.  He forgets them! 
 And thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
 Micah 7:19b  

That is amazing, too! God is serious when He says He forgives.  So if anyone reminds you of some sin that you have repented of, just know that God has forgotten it. 

When we forgive others as God as instructed us to do, let us do our best to forget their sins and not relive the sin over and over again to them.  

Forgive others as God has forgiven you. 

Forgiven,
