1 God Does Not Count the Times
Peter asked Jesus how many times should he forgive his brother. Peter thought maybe seven times might be a fair limit. But Jesus said “seventy times seven” (Matthew 18:21-22). Of course Jesus didn’t mean literally 490 times, but rather that the number of times are not to be counted.
How does the Bible tell us to repent?
Repent means to “change your mind about” or “to turn away from.” If you make a decision to turn away from your sins, that means you are walking away all of your sins, no matter how many of them there may be. You know He will forgive you when you genuinely repent through the Word of God (1 John 1:9 & Hebrews 4:14-16).
What are the four steps of repentance?
The first is responsibility: We must recognize that we have done wrong. The second is regret: We must have true remorse for doing wrong and for the pain and problems we’ve caused. The third is resolve: We must be committed never to repeat the act regardless of the temptations or situation.
How do we repent from God?
- Forgive yourself.
- Remember there is no limit on forgiveness.
- Change your environment.
- Know one thing that because of our sins Jesus was wounded, beaten because of the evil we did.
- Realize you are the only one who can change yourself (put on the armor of God).
- Believe things will change.
Can you repent after you die?
Some have promoted the idea of a second chance after death. But the Bible does not indicate that people get an opportunity to repent or to put faith in Jesus after they die. Hebrews 9:27 says, “People are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.”
Does God always forgive?
God knows the heart of a sinner and always forgives (absolves) and reconciles to God’s self provided the sinner is willing to come back to the Father and to begin a new life. This does not depend on whether those offended have forgiven him or her.
Does God remember our sins?
When God forgives our sin he puts it out of his mind; he erases it from the pages of time; he forgets it. The poet was right: “God moves in a mysterious way / His wonders to perform.” In Christ, God faces our sin. Through Christ, God forgives our sin. Because of Christ, God forgets our sin.
Does God weigh sin differently?
Scripture clearly indicates that God does view sin differently and that He proscribed a different punishment for sin depending upon its severity. “But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God” (Hebrews 10:12 ESV).
