The Forgiveness of God

To be human is to second-guess ourselves. Even the most confident among us struggle with guilt and doubt. Many of us go through life hoping we’ll be forgiven by God. Some of us assume we’ve been too bad to be forgiven. Almost all of us have trouble from time to time forgiving ourselves.

How can we be sure we have not made ourselves unforgivable in the eyes of God? How can we forgive ourselves for our worst moments? The answer is not found in our ability to forget, or in our ability to forgive ourselves. The answer is found in the love of Jesus, who took the pain and punishment we deserve. Our prayer is that in the pages of this brief booklet you will find genuine freedom of conscience that motivates you to share the extravagant forgiveness of God with others.
