Grace, Mercy and Forgiveness 

Leave a comment

By Yolanda K. Edwards

Psalm 51:1-2 – “Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.”

God loved us so much that He sacrificed His only son as a debt for our past, present, and future sins. He gives us grace and mercy that affords us opportunities that we don’t deserve and allows us to escape punishment that we do deserve. God is faithful and just to forgive all of our sins, but we have to be mindful to ask.  Just as God has bestowed grace and mercy upon us and has forgiven us, we must do the same for others.  If you’ve been participating in activities or living a life that you know God is not pleased with, take a moment to ask Him to forgive you. If you are harboring unforgiveness in your heart, ask God to help you get to a point of forgiveness.

Prayer starter- Lord, forgive me for the sins that I’ve committed against you and others. For those sins that I commit that I’m not aware of, bring them to my attention.  Help me get to a point of forgiveness for anyone that I have not forgiven…
