Just earlier today, Dane and I had a heated discussion about a sin that I’ve done in the past. I didn’t want him bringing up an issue that was in the past and already settled in the past. But today, for some reason, our regular chit-chat brought us to the issue again. It was one of the things I regret doing but can’t do anything about anymore. But it’s been done and all we have to do is move on and strive not to do it again.
Living a righteous life is the toughest challenge. Sometimes it’s hard to keep human likeness in today’s world of cruelty, indifference, and hostility. But, we are tested with temptations every day, and our job is to resist them. There are still people who are weak and can’t protect themselves from temptations. Those people can’t find their place in life, and hardest sins burden their mind. Is there salvation for such lost souls? Can they find God’s forgiveness? And how can a person deserve one?
1. Forgiveness is possible if you admit you were wrong
The first step towards forgiveness is to confess your sins. Once the person admits he or she was doing bad things, it’s easier to step in the way of remission. God is forgiving and is always seeking for us to give His mercy and love.
2. Forgive and you will be forgiven
Jesus showed us that everyone can deserve forgiveness even of the hardest sins. But, He also taught us to forgive. Even when it’s hard and hopeless you have to find forgiveness in your heart and make the world a better place to live in!
3. Love yourself
We are all God’s creatures. That means we are all created in His image and deserve His love. God proves His love to us every time. But, it’s harder sometimes to love yourself first. We aren’t perfect and omnipotent, but we have a God’s grace in our hearts from the moment of being conceived. And, as it was once written at https://uk.edubirdie.com, if there is even no reason to love yourself, find them and respect yourself for having a God’s divine nature.
