Psalm 51:1-8

The new student bounced in his seat. His teacher clearly stated that students need to be courteous to their fellow students; being quiet and still was part of that respect. He continued to bounce. After his teacher asked him to stay still several times, and his responses were rude and disrespectful, he made his first, of many, trip to the principal’s office.

Forgiveness is foundational to the redeemed life: without forgiveness we would not be in a right relationship with God. We know from Jesus’ teachings that God not only forgives us, but asks us to also forgive others. We are called to be recipients and givers of forgiveness.

A key component to forgiveness is repentance. To repent is to no longer do that action or behavior for which you are being forgiven. When you are truly repentant, you turn away from the hurtful behavior. We turn toward God and away from our sin.

We only embrace our remorse and forgiveness when we repent.
