The Promise Of God’s Forgiveness
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 (NKJV)
1 John 1:9 is a PROMISE. We will find forgiveness in Christ if we confess our sins. This is a blessed assurance. He will never say, “No, I don’t accept your apology and confession. I do not forgive you. I do not want a relationship with you.”
Some of you may know the heartache of humbling yourself and apologizing for something, hoping to restore a relationship, only to be rebuffed or ignored. Your cry to be forgiven was not met with love or a consoling pardon. This pain is one I know well. However, all we can do is what the scripture instructs and then leave it to God to mend.
