Q. Please assist:All the sin that I have committed,still will commit,have already been forgiven by God in Christ Jesus..After salvation,if I sin,which will happen,do I have to ask forgiveness again,or do I have to acknowledge my sin before God,repent of it.?If I ask again to be forgiven,do I crucify Jesus all over again?Or does God look at our hearts intention when we repent and not at how grammatically correct we repent.
A. 1 John 1:9 says that if we confess our sins, the Lord is just and faithful and will forgive our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. This was written to and for believers. Since all our sins are forgiven in the judicial sense, it doesn’t crucify the Lord all over again to confess. Rather, it restores us to fellowship with the Lord.
