I grew up going to church and gave my life to Jesus at a young age. Even when I followed Jesus, I always worried about sin. Fear would creep into my heart, and I’d worry that I screwed everything up. God was now mad at me, and there was no hope for me. Will God Forgive Me for this? Was always a question.
When I got older, I walked away from the church due to some childhood trauma I had experienced. While Jesus and forgiveness stayed in the back of my mind. I never thought about it until I wanted to do something unethical, immoral, or even illegal. The Holy Spirit is why I’m alive and free today. Without listening to him, I would’ve gotten into many stupid situations.
The answer to your question above is pretty simple. YES!!!! A Thousand Times YES!!!! God will forgive you for your sin, all you need to do is say “God forgive me.” And it’ll be done it’s why Jesus died, and he still loves you very much.
Grace abounds and covers a multitude of sins. We have to choose to die to our sin, if we do not and continue to live in sin, then we’re living in that rebellion I wrote about above.
When you feel like saying God forgive me, you’re feeling something is wrong, and asking God to forgive you is a way to make things right.
Will God Forgive Me If I continue to sin?
I believe that if you are honestly remorseful of your sin, and you continue to try and follow Jesus, he will always forgive you. I can’t prove that biblically, but it’s my feeling deep in my heart.
Jesus loves his people, and when you’re asking the question, Will God Forgive Me? You’re stating an inner desire for Jesus to forgive you. This means your heart is still longing after him, and the things of God.
When you aren’t feeling that way, your intentions are completely different. In actuality, you wouldn’t even ask the question. Instead, you’d justify what you did, blame it on someone else, or lie and say it didn’t happen.
As long as you’re following him, keep going, try to stop sinning, and ask him for help. He is faithful to forgive us of our sins.
The Difference Between Condemnation And Conviction
One of the biggest issues you’ll face when trying to live for Jesus comes from feelings of guilt and condemnation. These feelings aren’t from God. In reality, they’re from your own feelings of failure and the devil or his demons.
If you take away one thing from this article, I want you to know this.
JESUS LOVES YOU, AND HE DIED FOR YOU WHILE YOU WERE STILL A SINNER. HE THOUGHT OF YOU WHILE DYING
If Jesus loved you and wants only to reconcile with you, and you feel bad about what you did. Then what is stopping you from reaching out to him, saying I’m sorry, and living your life with him?
How Many Times Will God Forgive Me?
In the Bible Jesus and Peter are talking, and Jesus says 70 times 7. I’m not sure if that means a total of 490 times total, daily, or whatever count there is. However, I do wonder if Jesus was just trying to change their mindset.
I’ve read some biblical commentaries and they all say that number means boundless, or incalculable. I still go back to the heart. Jesus died for you, and you shouldn’t be living in fear and condemnation. If you still feel that way, your heart isn’t hardened. Jesus will forgive you and bring healing.
What If I’ve Gone Too Far? Will God Forgive Me?
This is a fun question, how far is too far? Did Hitler go too far? Even crazier, what if Lucifer asked for forgiveness legitimately? Would the grace of God extend to them?
Remember, If you’re asking will God forgive me? You’ve probably sinned, or you are close to it, and you’ll need to get back into a relationship with him. This means asking for forgiveness and focusing on him. However, we are still subject to the repercussions of our actions.
For instance, if you have a drinking problem, and are an alcoholic who continues to ask for forgiveness. God will forgive you. However you still might get liver disease, and your family might still have issues with you.
Is It Too Late To As God To Forgive Me?
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say you were breathing when you typed that question. As long as you have breath in your lungs, you can say God Forgive me.
However, once you die, your choice has been made, and that’s the crazy part about it all.
However, saying the prayer God forgive me is not to be taken lightly either. You don’t wanna abuse Gods grace, and continuously asking God forgive me isn’t the greatest thing either.
Choose this day whom you’ll serve, when you mess up ask God to forgive you, but don’t abuse his grace.
One of the biggest problems we have in Christianity today is a group of people that tell everyone that life gets better with Jesus, and if that’s the case I’m serving the wrong Jesus.
My life has gotten harder, and worse. However, what makes things better is walking with him. Life is hard, never do it alone. When I walked with him I can take on things that I’d never handled before, and win battles I’d usually lose.
Jesus wants to live life with us, that’s why he came and died. When you ask God forgive me, you’re forgiven. Forgiveness is a restoration of that life. Walking with him is living it. This doesn’t make things easy, it gives you support to go through the trials.
Will God Forgive Me If I Don’t Forgive Others?
But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
This verse above answers the question straight away. If you have un-forgiveness in your heart. The father won’t forgive your sins. If we’re trying to be like Jesus, but not forgiving others. How are we being like Jesus?
I wrote another article on this very topic. It’s called How To Forgive And Let Go Also if you’d like to read more about my personal story, which coincidently covers this very topic, pick up a copy of my book called Hurricane Jerald. It’s my personal testimony about faith, forgiveness, and reconciliation.
Sterling grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis. As a kid he loved skateboarding but mostly did street riding. He injured his ankle badly when he dropped into his first half pipe. His skateboarding slowed down after that, but he still loved the sport. While in his 20's he needed to make a change, so he did some world traveling with a motivational speaking group.
