Does God Keep Forgiving?

by Joseph Mamah
(Accra, Ghana)

Would God forgive my sins even if I keep going back to do the same things I pray for forgiveness for? How do I stay away from sexual immorality?

Answer: As is described in the forgvenss study on this site, God does forgive every sin. However, that is a different act or event or decision or whatever you want to call it than you accepting that forgiveness. So for you to realize that you have been forgiven and accept it, you need to understand that God does forgive (and paid the price - the life of his only begotten son - so that you could be forgiven). Read the whole study if you can.

It also helps in dealing with any specific sin, to have an appreciation for God's Character and to know how good he is. When we understand His love and forgiveness we can come to the point where

"We love Him, because He first loved us." (1 John 4:19)

And that realization and motivation can help keep us from any sin. Of course, there may be specific steps you should be taking to avoid exposing yourself to temptation.
