What forgiveness is and what it isn’t: how God’s forgiveness changes your life, how forgiving others can set you free, how forgiving yourself is true humility and provides a new self image, and how forgiving God is important to your relationship with Him. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:9
