Sterling work again Robert my friend. Why would He? No clue. Just because He is God and this is what is so amazing about His grace.

I used to struggle with salvation and wonder how God could forgive me. I struggled with it for a few months and then I realized my sin, pride.

Pride is a powerful thing, and arguably, the sin that started it all. I was so proud of my sin that I had no idea how God could forgive someone like me. Or maybe I just didn’t want to really believe it. Once I realized that, a huge relief came over me. God opened my eyes and now I know that as much as God hates sin, as much as He hates us for sinning, He loves the world so much that He gave His only Son Jesus to bear the punishment of our transgressions against The Father.

The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit all love us and want a relationship with us. Don’t let pride hold your back.

Thank you, Steven,
You are absolutely right. Pride is a terrible and sneaky thing. When I first became a Christian, I wrestled with the pride of thinking I was better than others because I was saved. Like it was something I did myself. God got a hold of me and set me straight though. Thank you for reading and commenting. May God continue to bless you in your walk with Him.
Yours in Christ,

Wonderful write-up!!! But I have a problem. We are all sinners,I know,but when I ask God for forgiveness which he does forgive me,I still find my self doing the same thing again and get furious with my self. Because,I feel it’s somehow asking God for forgiveness over and over again and still going back to the same sin.So,that’s where the question comes in “would God forgive me again”. Deep down I really don’t want to sin but somehow I just succumb to temptation and find myself doing it and I feel ashamed to still ask God for forgiveness again. Although I still have no choice than to beg for forgiveness but I feel sad

Thank you for reading and commenting. Some bad habits are harder to overcome than others. We’ve spent many years serving our own lusts and now we are trying to serve God. Hang in there, don’t give up. God will forgive you as often as it takes, if you are sincerely repenting. Trust in His power and it will become easier and easier to resist temptation. Remember, sometimes we must make a change in our circumstances to be able to avoid temptation. In other words, we can’t keep doing the same thing and expect change. Might I suggest you read this article, pray for God’s strength and guidance, and know you aren’t alone in your struggle.
God bless you.
Yours in Christ,

Robert. I was born again 14 years ago and had a wonderful relationship with the Lord. Life got really hard and I started drinking but became addicted and now 6 years later I feel completely unforgivable and am afraid I’ve lost my salvation. I’ve quit everything and repented of all known sin but the guilt and condemnation I feel is almost unbearable. How could God forgive me for dealing so terrible to him. I’m really upset and never thought I could get this far from God. He already cancelled my sin debt once. He has every right to send me to hell. But I just want to serve Him again. I’m troubled by verses in Hebrews and 2 Peter. But have found hope in Isaiah, Ezekiel, and James 5:19-20. I’m just concerned I was the rocky soil believer and that there is no second chance with God. I know he is capable of anything. I just know I don’t deserve mercy.

when i ask for forgiveness .. something in the back of my mind is like ” oh you dont mean that ” but i do !!!! i mean it with all my heart , so then i start to feel uncleansed like God didnt even forgive me and i just feel .. so uncleansed

Jack Wellman July 20, 2017 at 8:09 am

Hello Marielena. Yes, it does make sense, but 1 John 1:9 is objective truth while our “feelings” are not trustworthy. Talk to your pastor about this because all who have repented and trusted in Christ will be saved, regardless of what they feel, uncleansed or otherwise, we must believe God’s Word and not our feelings.

marielena July 20, 2017 at 3:03 am

probably doesnt even make sense ..
