Forgiveness in the Bible
Forgiving people who have hostile or wronged us is one of the most difficult things God wants us to do. We must be grateful in the Bible that we as believers can get perfect forgiveness in Jesus Christ since He suffered on the cross, saying: "Father, forgive them, because they do not know what they are doing" (Luke 23: 34)
As for 10 things about "forgiving" in the Bible verse, what you can find out are as follows:
1. Matthew 6: 14-15
"Because if you forgive people's mistakes, your Father who is in Heaven will forgive you too. But if you do not forgive people, neither will your Father forgive your mistakes ”The verse does not say that if you do not want to forgive a brother or sister, then God will not be able to forgive as much in your Bible as possible. This means that if you don't want to forgive others, then you may not be saved
2. John 1: 9
`` If we confess our sins, then He is faithful and just, so that He will forgive all our sins and cleanse us from all evil. '' This is a verse that Seventh-day Adventists have often recited because they often advise or remind others who have done something wrong. wrong for his sins. Remember that God is "faithful and can only forgive our sins and cleanse us from all that is not holy or unrighteous". However, only "If we confess our sins"
3. Psalm 51: 9
"Clean me from my sins with hyssop, and I will be clean, wash me, and I will be whiter than snow!" if we want to confess our sins then He can take away our sins. Then, after we confess our sins, we will be "whiter than snow." In this way, God can "make our hearts clean" and this will "renew the true spirit in us."
4. Isaiah 1:18
'' Come on, let's have a lawsuit! - says the Lord - Even if your sins are red like scarlet, they will be white as snow; even though it is red like a sunflower, it will be white like fleece. "" Isaiah, one of the prophets of Allah has said that we must first "dispute" with God. This means that if you say that you have sinned, then you have to confess it. Confessing sins means agreeing with God about any sins or wrongs that have been committed. Sin means missing a target like an archer firing an arrow that is hundreds of meters away not only from the bull's eye and the target.
5. Psalm 103: 12
"As far as the east is from the west, thus has kept our transgressions away from us." This verse is important to you because God not only forgives us, but He also takes away our sins to the limit where we will never meet God again.
6. Corinthians 5: 18-19
"And all of this is from God, who by means of Christ has reconciled us to Himself and who has entrusted the service of reconciliation to us". '' Because God reconciled the world to Himself by Christ by not taking into account their transgressions. He has entrusted the message of reconciliation to us ''
God has given us a "ministry of reconciliation in Christ" which means that Paul who became a disciple of Christ preached the gospel of the forgiveness of sins and God "did not count their transgressions of sin" and God "entrusted Paul with the message of reconciliation. Since Jesus has also entrusted us to this ministry of reconciliation, we must give it to others and that ministry.
7. Ephesians 4:32
"" But be kind to one another, full of affection and forgiveness, as God in Christ has forgiven you "
This verse states that if we "forgive one another as Jesus Christ also forgives us, then we will" be kind to one another ". A soft hearted person is able to grow and bear fruit in Christ as a form of forgiveness in the Bible and forgiveness is an act of kindness. You cannot get the good of others if you don't want to forgive them.
8. Hebrews 8:12
"" Because I will have compassion on their mistakes and no longer remember their sins. "The command of this verse is important to you because you have to forgive others first, then you can forget the mistakes of others.
9. Luke 6:37
"" Do not judge, then you will not be judged. And do not punish, and you will not be punished either. forgive and you will be forgiven ''. John 8: 7 '' And when they persistently cultivated
Yes, to Him, He stood up and said to them, "Whoever is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." Both verses state that Jesus wants you to first forgive others without judging.
10. Luke 17: 3-4
"Take care of yourself!" If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him. Even if he sins against you seven times a day and seven times he comes back to you and says: I am sorry, you must forgive him. ”The verse likens that if God’s forgiveness to us is unlimited, then we should be unlimited towards others.
It can be concluded that God has forgiven your sins through redemption by Jesus Christ if you have truly repented and believed in Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21).
