Why You should Ask for Forgiveness

River of Grace Outreach Ministries International



Forgiveness is all about pardon from something you may have done or done against you. It is to cease to blame or hold on to resentment against yourself or someone. The book of Matthew 6:14-15 is an important principles to learn forgivemess. It says, "for if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."


Following the above principles, it is therefore important to know that mankind is not sin free and therefore need to ask the LORD for forgiveness. Looking at the book of Psalm 51:1-12, then there is the need to ask God for forgiveness and WHY?


People break moral laws every day, otherwise called transgressions which need to be blotted out of our lives.

There is iniquity in our lives that need to be thoroughly washed.

We have all sinned and are carriers of sins before God, therefore need to cleansed.

We need to ask for forgiveness so that we may be blameless on the day of judgement.

We were all brought forth into this earth in iniquity and in sin oour mothers conceived us.

We need to ask for forgiveness so that we can be purged with hyssop.

So that we can be cleaned in order to be whiter than snow.

So that we can regain back our joy and gladness that was lost to sins.

So that the LORD does not hide His face from us and cast us away from His presence.

So that the Holy Spirit is not taken away from us.

So that the joy of our salvation is restored.


The Bible says in the book of 1 John 1:8-10, "if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. " Therefore, may I implore you to be brave enough to forgive yourself and be bold to ask the LORD to forgive you of all your sins and cleanse you from all unrighteousness.


God is inviting you to come to Him today for your salvation. He solidified this invitation by giving His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to pay the price of your sins. His grace has provided all the means for you to be saved, delivered, healed and restored. I guarantee you that when you decide to forgive yourself and others, He will wash and cleanse you, and you will receive abundant love, mercy and grace.
