Forgiveness – Phillips Brooks

Forgive, forget. Bear with the faults of others as you would have them bear with yours. Be patient and understanding. Life is too short to be vengeful or malicious.

The Voice of Forgiveness is Louder – DL Moody

The Voice of Forgiveness is Louder – DL Moody

Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?”  Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times (Matthew 18:21-22).

Peter did not seem to think that he was in danger of falling into sin; his question was, How often should I forgive my brother? But very soon we hear that Peter has fallen. I can imagine that when he did fall, the sweet thought came to him of what the Master had said. The voice of sin may be loud, but the voice of forgiveness is louder.

Confess Our Sins – Alan Redpath

It’s Satan’s delight to tell me that once he’s got me, he will keep me. But at that moment I can go back to God. And I know that if I confess my sins, God is faithful and just to forgive me.

The seriousness of sin – Tony Reinke

Christ’s blood reveals the seriousness of our sin. We insurrected the king. We defiled His glory. We deserve His wrath, and Christ absorbed it.

Confess Your Sins – DL Moody

Confess Your Sins – DL Moody

There are men today who are in darkness and bondage because they are not willing to turn from their sins and confess them. I do not know how a man can hope to be forgiven if he is not willing to confess his sins.
