Module Five: Forgiveness
Forgiveness is the most basic of all principles in the Bible. Yet forgiveness of oneself for abortion is a very difficult matter. Psalm 103:12 says, As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
Micah 7:19 NIV relays, You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins under foot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.
When we seek God with an open heart, asking Him to forgive our sins, He does. God then casts our sins into the sea of His forgetfulness and posts a “NO FISHING” sign. That’s the simple truth.
After we have given our sins to God, our memories may recall our old emotions. Feelings like shame, guilt and anger may return. In those days, we should then remind ourselves of God’s “No Fishing” sign. We must allow God to use time and His grace to calm these memories and comfort us again.
This module will outline the various elements of forgiveness as they relate to an abortion experience. Our prayer is that God would use this module to break through to your heart with His love for you!
