Will Jesus forgive me with all I've done?

Throughout history, many people have wondered whether God could forgive all their sins, even the really bad ones. If you find yourself in that place, there's good news. The Bible is full of examples of God forgiving all of someone's sins, even their worst ones.

Perhaps the greatest example is the Apostle Paul. Before Jesus saved him, Paul spent many years persecuting and even killing Christians. He was opposed to Jesus and wanted to wipe out all the Christians. Then Jesus saved Paul and totally transformed his life.

In 1 Timothy 1:15-16, Paul says, "This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. However, for this reason, I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life."

Paul's point is that if God could forgive all of his sins, which were so heinous, then God can forgive anyone who comes to Him in repentance. When God blots your sins out, He just erases the record. It's gone. Buried in the grave of God's forgetfulness. (See Micah 7:19.) Never to surface. If it ever gets brought up again, it’s either Satan or your conscience, but it’s not God. He blotted it out. From sin’s pollution—He cleanses you. You're not just patched up. You're clean, whiter than snow.
