How To Obtain Forgiveness For Your Sins

Posted by Efoghor Joseph Ezie on 5/19/2010 03:20:00 PM

It is an obvious and undisputable fact that we have all sinned against God and need to be forgiven in order to be able to fellowship with him and also enjoy the privilege of heaven. However, there are steps we must take in order to get God’s forgiveness.

To get total forgiveness from God, you need to take the following steps
1.Confess your sins: When you confess your sins God will forgive you because he is a merciful and forgiving God. Confessing your sins shows that you are sorry for them; you have to own up before God that you are a sinner. You do not need to be ashamed to tell him whom you are and what you have been (Psalm 32:5; Prov.28:13; 1 John 1:9).

2.Repent from your sins: To repent is to show that you are sorry for the sins you have committed and when you show remorse God forgives you unconditionally and cleanses you from all unrighteousness (Ezekiel 18:30-31; Acts 3:19-20)

3.Hate your sins: God looks at your heart to see how much you hate your sins. When you truly repent you would hate your past disgustful life. Hating your past sinful ways ensures total forgiveness for you. If you still cherish your filthy past in your heart, it means you have not repented and that kind of attitude cannot bring forgiveness to you (Psalm 97:10; Amos 5:15; 3John 11).

4.Fight against it: You must do all you can to see that sin does not overtake you; stand against it, resist the urge and deliberately abstain from it and from everything that can lure you into it (Heb.12:4).

5.Turn away from sins: Do not go back into sin once you have been forgiven. God does not look at what you were before you received the message of truth: he is so concerned about what you do after you have known the truth. If you go back into sin after you have obtain God’s mercy and forgiveness then there is no more avenue remaining for you (Psalm 34:14; Isaiah 1:16).

6.Throw away your sins: The book of Hebrews admonishes us to throw away every weight and sin that easily harm us or injure us. Sins are harmful to every child of God, so you must keep them away from your life so you could enjoy a healthier relationship and communion with your heavenly father (Heb.12:1).
