Does God Really Forgive Us?

It Is Written,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.
Sometimes it is hard to believe that God really does forgive us. Whether you believe or not, is based on a couple of things. You must believe through faith that God hears you, no matter how you feel. Another is, that you must believe that God has unconditional love for everyone, and nothing is too horrible to forgive.
We should all realize that all of the above, hinges on our relationship with Jesus. The closer the relationship, the stronger the faith.
Another important factor to realize is, that because of our free will, forgiveness from God, does not mean there will be no consequences, even though we have been forgiven. The world we live in, does not forgive. It demands justice in one way or another.
Do not for one moment think that because we suffer consequences, that God hasn't forgiven us. If we want to avoid most of the unpleasantness, we must let the Holy Spirit guide our actions, rather than trusting in our own minds.
As our relationship with Jesus grows, so does our faith. When we reach that point, we can hear the Holy Spirit teaching and guiding us in our hearts. We might still mess up once in a while, but God is always there to forgive us, all we have to do is ask. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
