Sin causes grief. Yet forgiveness brings joy. God is a God of mercy, and as 1 John 1:9 teaches, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." His mercy has no limit. This PowerPoint sermon on 1 John 1:9 pictures a man bowing his head in prayer. The title, "God of Mercy" is printed in green, against a parchment background.
