- Scripture promises forgiveness (1 John 1:9; Proverbs 28:13).
- Scripture pictures forgiven sin as being removed… as being cast into the depths of the sea (Micah 7:18-19); as being cast behind my back (Isaiah 38:17); and as far as east is from the west (Psalm 103:120).
- Christ’s blood cleanses the conscience (Hebrews 9:13-14).
- Forgiven people can forgive others. If you can forgive offenses, you can be certain that God, who describes Himself as merciful, will forgive you.
