What does the Bible reveal regarding forgiveness ?
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil which I purpose to do unto them; that they may return every man from his evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin.
For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
The evidence that the Spirit of Christ is within you is determined by:
- the fruit of God’s Spirit displayed in the life (Gal. 5:22)
- a love for God by keeping His commandments (John 14:15)
- having the mind of Christ (Phil. 2:5)
- reflecting the perfect character of God (Matt 5:48)
- how willing we are to forgive others just as God forgives us (Matt. 6:14 & 15)
