Pray for forgiveness

…..One of the greatest themes that is seen in the Bible from beginning to end is the theme of forgiveness. God has chosen to forgive those who humbly come to Him in faith and trust in Jesus Christ as their savior. Many of the Old Testament stories are written to help us understand the concept of forgiveness to one another and how God forgives us. The New Testament is filled with stories of people who have changed lives because of God’s forgiveness. They are examples of how we should live today in light of God’s forgiveness in our lives.

     Her are some verses from the Bible about forgiveness:

Genesis 27:1 – 33:11          Matthew 5:22-24          Luke 7:47-48

Luke 23:43                          John 4:13-14                 Acts 4:10-12

 

     Why do You forgive us?  We shout praises to You when we sing worship.  With the same tongue we curse other people that are made in Your image. (James 3:9 reference)  Why do You forgive us?  We say we love You and still keep sinning.  Why do You forgive us?  We spend time in prayer thanking You for your blessings and then we refuse to bless others.  Why do You forgive us?  We read our Bibles when we make time for it, but we also read other nonsense that is offensive to You.  Why do You forgive us?  We praise Jesus for His death on the cross for the atonement of our sins and then we nail Him to it again every time we trespass against You.  Why do You forgive us every single time?  I am so thankful for your endless supply of forgiveness!  I can’t fathom how You do it, for I am only one man.  You do this for every single person!  The compassion and grace and mercy that flow from You is absolutely amazing and I love You for it!  Thank you so much for forgiving me every time I sin!  You are worthy to be praised!  Amen.
