Psalm 103 Bible Study


1. God is forgiving and compassionate

God is forgiving and compassionate. He always forgive us when we sincerely confess our sins and repent. In John 1:8-9, 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. In Matthew 18:21-22, then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. In Matthew 6:14-15, for if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. In Mark 11:25, And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. In Ephesians 4:32, and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
