We Forgive Others

Description

If Jesus forgave those who nailed Him to the cross and if God forgives you and me, how can you withhold your forgiveness from someone else?

I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more(JEREMIAH 31:34)

Forgiveness is difficult, especially if you think it’s about your feelings.

It isn’t. It’s about God! We forgive others, not because they deserve it, but because He deserves it. In His agony on the cross, Jesus said, “Father, forgive them” (Luke 23:34). If Jesus forgave those who nailed Him to the cross, and if God forgives you and me, how can you withhold your forgiveness from someone else?

If God says, “I forgive you,” who are we to say, “Thank You, God, but I can’t forgive someone else—or even myself”? Are your standards higher than His? More righteous than His?

If God says, “I forgive you,” the only appropriate response is, “God, thank You. I don’t deserve it, but I accept it. And to express my gratitude I, in turn, forgive the person who’s sinned against me—even if that person is me.”

Make your forgiveness your act of worship.
