Forgiveness is not just about how God forgives us, it is also how we forgive each other.
God cannot go back on his word, he says “if we confess our sin, he is faithful and he will forgive our sins.” The real deal is do you forgive others? It’s hard to forgive because of our human nature but then it is required of us to forgive. Ephesians 4:32 “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”
God has promised to forgive but for him to forgive us, we must confess our sins and humbly ask for forgiveness. This is the real type of heart that God wants and he will forgive.
Don’t allow guilt in you, because if you do, it will always keep you weighed down but instead ask God to forgive you and be free from guilt. Christ didn’t die in vain, he died so we might have access to God. For this reason, nothing should be holding us back from asking for forgiveness. While asking God for forgiveness, don’t forget to forgive others too.
Don’t be the servant in Matthew 18:27 who was forgiven but didn’t forgive his own servant.
