Great article 🙂 . Forgiveness is so important. Too many people hold grudges… I used to as well, but then gave my life to Jesus and He teached me to forgive.

God bless!

Amen! Isn’t awesome to be forgiven? We must also be willing to forgive. May God continue to bless you as you forgive others as you are forgiven.

It was mention in this article that “The Father in Heaven won’t necessarily take away the consequences of your sin”

This is a deep teaching but I believed that once a person receives the holy spirit, from that day onwards he/she received conviction to avoid sinful action, When a Christian sins, he/she receives a disciplinary action to learn from that mistake, (Heb. 12:6~7) (Job 5:17~18) but not it’s consequences (because the consequences of sin is always death (6:23), until comes a time when he/she realizes that an error must be completely avoided to perfection as required by the Lord.

Thank you Edwin for your insightful comment. You’re so right in that the “wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). Yet there are consequences to our sinful behaviors such as the consequence of adultery may result in separation or the consequence of overeating (gluttony) may result in chronic health issues. As believers we do have the power of God to resist a sinful lifestyle…that is correct. However we must be careful in that if “we claim to be without sin…we are liars” (1 John 1:8-10). I appreciate your wisdom in sharing on this article. May the Lord richly bless you.

O Lord please forgive for the sins i have commited and the one i’ll still commit

Crystal McDowell August 24, 2013 at 11:57 am

Dearest Damilola,
The Lord is faithful and desiring to forgive you. Only confess your sins and admit your weakness. Ask the Holy Spirit for strength to overcome sin. He will honor your sincere heart.

God bless you. Stay strong in the faith. Amen.

I am glad you mentioned the consequences of sin,because when I read it above about forgiveness it seemed a bit hypocritical. Can you explain this to me has I am a bit thick.
Has far as I can make out God forgives you,but you have to suffer the consequences like drinking you become an alcoholic
is that what you mean.
I found it very hard to forgive myself,and I couldn`t believe God would forgive me through a certain sin I was committing
It took Jack a couple of posts to sort me out. I was like doubting Thomas how God could forgive me for the sins that they were many. Like what you said up above in your article how many times six times sixty. I evan think a lot in what I write because it comes from my heart. Thanks for your article Crystal.

Pauline August 16, 2013 at 5:38 am

Thanks for such a great article Crystal. Forgiveness gives one such a relief and it gives one space in one’s soul to deal with other challenges instead of holding grudges. Since I took a decision that I will forgive no matter what, I live a much happier life than before. Every time someone does something bad to me I just forgive him/her without the person coming to me to ask for forgiveness. Because when I remember what God has done for me I feel that I was worse that what the other person has done to me but I was not even asked by God to explain myself but was forgiven just like that. I thank God for Jesus who came to die for our sins.

Thanks again and keep up the good work. You are really building our characters.

God Bless you.

Dear Pauline…you’ve given rich insight into how we must forgive and trust in the Lord to heal our brokenness.

God bless,

pearl August 16, 2013 at 11:01 am

i love jesus and would be happy to receive the good advices

Crystal McDowell August 16, 2013 at 5:51 pm

Dearest Pearl, may the Lord continue to bless you in your love for Jesus!


Judy August 17, 2013 at 8:26 am

Thank you, Crystal for your wisdom and insight into forgiveness. Consequences are determined by which route we take to forgive: Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. (Galatians 6:7, 8 NKJV). So I ask myself, am I reaping the fruits of the Spirit, love, joy, peace… (Gal 5:22) or destruction anger, hatred, jealousy…(Gal. 5:19-21H.

Crystal McDowell August 24, 2013 at 11:58 am

I appreciate your wisdom Judy! Keep bringing it on…

John S August 23, 2013 at 12:40 am

Thanks for the great message and insight. It really helped me in a time of need.

Crystal McDowell August 24, 2013 at 11:59 am

Dear John…all glory belongs to the Lord. May you sense His loving peace over your life today. God bless.

Jordan Robinson June 12, 2016 at 6:36 pm

I have been brought up in a christian household and I got saved very young but ever since I reached teenage stage I have kept on falling into sexual sin e.g. pornography, prostitutes. I then come back to God and then shortly after fall into the same sin. I then get right with God again and the vicious circle keeps going on. What if God just gets fed up with me and won’t forgive me again or my purpose in life will be taken away from me? What to I do? Do I have to tell other people? Help

Jack Wellman June 12, 2016 at 9:12 pm

Thank you Jordan. Yes, find an accountability partner, a trusted Christian brother. Make them check on your status every few days or day. Keep resisting, talk to your pastor, he will keep it confidential, and remember that God will never give up on anyone that’s been brought to repentance and trust in Christ. Fight….from your knees.

Innocent Phiri April 24, 2021 at 4:12 am

I tend to commit the same sin most of the times. What should I do to stay away from this situation and start following the Lord our God wholeheartedly?

Jack Wellman April 24, 2021 at 9:28 am

I would call your pastor and find a Christian accountability partner and have your church pray for you as an unspoken needs, as we are commanded to do (Heb 10:24-26).
