This third LHM Learn course in the Nurturing Your Faith series focuses on forgiveness. In this four-part Bible study, we will look at how forgiveness received-and forgiveness offered to others-is central to our lives as Christians. God in His mercy has granted those faithful to Jesus the gift of new life, and with it comes His forgiveness. It's a pardon whereby our sins are hurled "into the depths of the sea," leaving us completely cleansed and "white as snow" in the eyes of God (see Micah 7:19; Isaiah 1:18). All this is possible because of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection (see Acts 2:22-24, 38-39; Hebrews 1:1-4). But first, a few words about why mankind needs forgiveness.
