How Do One Ask For Forgiveness? by Innobee99(m): 3:56am On Nov 08, 2018
Without wasting much of our time, let me go straight to the point. There are times you go wrong against someone, it could be ur neighbour, friend, siblings or even anyone without their consent.
Now, the question is, how do u ask for forgiveness? And secondly, when can ur sin be forgiven?
Main Senerio: How do u ask for forgiveness?
Sometimes u feel shy to tell someone that his or her missing phone or property is with u but right within ur heart u feel sorry and remorseful for ur action but can't directly walk to that person to tell him or her u're sorry. Now, can ur sin be forgiven wen u only ask for forgiveness from God without literally asking for forgiveness from the victim?
Also, there are times u begin to recall many u have offended in the past and maybe u can't even set ur eyes on these persons till eternity. Must u ask for forgiveness from those u have offended before God can forgive u?
Please I need meaningful responses from this great family.

There is no sin that God cannot forgive..

No matter how terrible, or wicked.

Once you associate yourself with the blood of Jesus, your sins are forgiven.

If you cannot see the person you offended, that will not stop you from receiving forgiveness From God through Jesus.

Let's say I stole someone's phone long ago, I can make amends by giving cash back. Maybe double of the amount.. or triple.

The owner might not know why I am doing that,

God surely know.


After asking God for forgiveness, it is important that you do not go back to your old ways again.

Excellent answer, Originakalokalo.

Innobee99, I would only add that it is not an absolute requirement that you make amends to everyone you have offended. It is not always practicable or wise and people will not always be willing to forgive you.

What you must keep in mind is that all sin is really against God and when we try to make amends with other people, it is to try to fix an otherwise desirable relationship which we damaged by out actions. The fact that our overtures of reconciliation are rejected does not mean that God does not forgive us. If it is possible and wise, seek forgiveness from those you have offended. But whether or not they offer it, if you have confessed to God and repented, you are free.

May the Lord's Grace keep you.
