You offer forgiveness to even the most heinous human who asks with a repentant heart. I know…I have been forgiven!
To know the joyous freedom of being granted a full and complete pardon from the consequences of my rejection of Christ’s sacrifice…to have You pay the debt I owed and redeem me from darkness, is an inexplicable gift I neither earned nor deserved.
To have been forgiven so much, it is the height of human arrogance to believe I can withhold my forgiveness from those who have hurt or rejected me.
As You healed my brokenness, I can help heal others by demonstrating the forgiveness I received and sharing it with others.
Teach me to truly forgive others and help them experience the freedom and joy I have experienced.
Scripture: “ And all things are of God, who has reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation…” II Corinthians 5:18
