All scripture is from the New Living Translation (NLT) unless noted otherwise. Permission on section title page.
Though we are overwhelmed by our sins, you forgive them all.
He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.
For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, (14) who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.
You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. (14) He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.
Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
1 John 1:9
But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.
1 John 2:12
I am writing to you who are God’s children because your sins have been forgiven through Jesus.
