Understanding Forgiveness – Part 2


Proverbs 28:13 – He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.

Why is it important to receive forgiveness?

  • It is sign of  willingness to repent and obey God’s word
  • To be cleansed and pure
  • So that your prayer will be answered
  • So that you will not reap judgement
  • To restore fellowship and prevent a strain in relationships
  • To walk in love and be a good ambassador of Christ
  • To prevent the devil from taking advantage of you
  • For peace to reign

The bible says in Matthew 5:9 – Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
