Do you know what it is like not to be forgiven?
Do you know how it feels to truly be sorry about something and yet your most heartfelt words are not received?
Although I would hope not, I am afraid that there are many people in this world who have experienced these feelings time and again.
God, however, will never cease to forgive when we ask.
When we are truly sorry about something, our most heartfelt words are received by our heavenly Father.
Not only are they received, but they are placed beside the truth that Jesus has already paid the penalty for the transgressions we are speaking about.
With the penalty being paid, He is faithful to forgive.
Not once, but always.
If we say that we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and refusing to accept the truth. But if we confess our sins to Him, He can be depended on to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong. And it is perfectly proper for God to do this for us because Christ died to wash away our sins.
–1 John 1:8-9
