TOPIC: GOD’S FORGIVENESS
Forgiveness toward others should be our priority as we walk this road called life. We should be slow to anger and quick to forgive. Jesus told us “to turn the other cheek.”We are to turn our cheek even after being slapped hard. What does the Bible say about God’s forgiveness? Let’s turn to the following verses and take a look:
*Psalm 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. ( God forgives us and forgets what He forgave us for). We should follow this example.
*Isaiah 43:25 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.
*Micah 7: 18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.
19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
*Hebrews 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
*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.
WE SHOULD FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE OF GOD OUR CREATOR!
