God's forgiveness for us, so freely given if we confess.

1John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

It does not make light of the sin, but it cleanses it and restores the person to their place in relationship.

Even though it is not easy, forgiveness must be given.

Matt. 6:14-15 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 
 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Restore the sinner.

Gal. 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

God remembers the sin no more, could we not do the same?

Heb. 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

All because of the blood of Jesus Christ.

1John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Thankful for forgiveness,
