Have you ever been in a relationship and something happened that resulted in you causing the other party hurt and pain? You apologize, and though they are hurting, they say that they accept your apology. You all try to move on from that place of pain, but then every time you turn around they are reminding you about “the time you hurt them.”
Or perhaps they just act differently towards you because their mouth said they forgave you, but their heart just hadn’t grabbed hold of the forgiveness yet. So you find yourself in this constant battle to prove that you are really sorry.
Fortunately for us, we serve a forgiving and gracious God who really means it when He forgives us. He isn’t keeping score, and He won’t keep throwing your past sin back in your face. Even when we don’t deserve His forgiveness, He forgives us. So you can rest assured that when you finally come to the place of true repentance and tell God that you are sorry about what every sin you find yourself constantly repeating, He will really forgive you.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. John 1:9
