Have you ever wondered what the Bible says about forgiving yourself?

We know that the Lord has forgiven us through the blood of Jesus Christ. In John 3:16:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have [eternal] life.

But sometimes in Christian living, it's hard to forgive ourselves for our past mistakes. Life changes so quickly but we have a hard time moving on.

God's forgiveness is infinite. If we are to live like Jesus Christ, we need to forgive ourselves like God has forgiven us.

If the Holy Spirit resides with us, we should forgive ourselves like we forgive others. God in Christ already answered for our sin, and we should live in faith and answered prayers.

In today's Bible study, you will learn about Scriptures on forgiving yourself. No matter what your background is, or what you have done, God has already forgiven you.
