Does God Really Want to Forgive Me?

When we sin, it’s easy to go down a slippery slope of shame and guilt - and to believe that our sins are just too big and too bad for God to forgive. Or maybe it’s not that we feel our sins are especially “big and bad,” but instead we’re ashamed that this is the 100th time we’ve slipped into that same, sinful pattern. It leaves us asking, “Does God really want to forgive ME?”
