Ask a questionQ & A
Does Jesus really know that I love him dearly and thank him for dying for my sins? I have done a lot of bad things in my life.
Thank you for asking your question to us: the good news is YES! Jesus hears you and knows if you are truly thankful and sorry for your sins AND he WILL forgive you.
One of my favourite Bible verses is found in Romans 10:9-13:
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”... For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved".[emphasis added]
You have already said that you believe Jesus died for your sins. If you also believe he rose again to conquer them (which I am guessing you do)... then the Bible clearly says that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved!!!
There are no add ons. It does not say that only certain people can be forgiven. Or that there is some things that Jesus cannot forgive. NO. Jesus hears everyone's prayers and truly forgives everyone who calls on Him.
