Forgiveness in God

Forgiveness from a father

God hates sin but he forgives after repentance.

He made provision for repentance. 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

God wants us to admit our guilt by confession. Unconfessed sin hinders prayer. It also permits Satan to accuse the guilty.

We are forgiven when we admit our guilt by confession.

Confession is in two ways. The first is confessing to God. The other is confessing to the person wronged (James 5:16).

God grants forgiveness to those sorry for their sins. He forgives when we ask.

God’s fairness in forgiving sins shouldn't be abused through deliberate sin (Romans 6:1).

Confession of sin cleanses from guilt and condemnation. We are washed with Christ's blood as we do.

We should forgive others as God forgives us (Matthew 6:14).
