Requirements of Forgiveness

Love and forgiveness are quite different though it often takes a lot of love to forgive someone.

Forgiveness requires

1. A wrong done; 
2. Admission of guilt; 
3. Repentance by the wrong doer: 


4. Forgiveness by the one who was wronged.

This is why we confess our sins to God and repent. The word repent means to turn around - that is make a commitment to not do the sin again. This is a lot more than saying "I am sorry."

Repentance and Forgiveness restarts the relationship fresh.
