Scripture is full of examples of God’s mercy and forgiveness. All of us fail to live up to God’s moral standards, yet God forgives us again and again.

For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. (Psalm 103:11–12, NIV).

Here we see God’s love again. It is because He loves us that He is gracious and wants to forgive us.

 Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. (Micah 7:18, NIV)

Before we look at how God provides for our sins to be forgiven, let’s take a few more glimpses at who He is.
