Forgiveness Is For All
July 1, 2013
“Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.” - Ephesians 4:32
Too often, even as Christians, we bring up the past and use it as a weapon against our spouses and friends. Forgiveness is the foundation of the Gospel (good news). What can wash away our sins, nothing but the blood of Jesus (very good news). As children of God, the blood of Jesus washes away all sin, past, present, and future. We need to forgive others as God has forgiven us, completely. If we choose not to do so, we will have a hard time believing God forgives us when we are in sin.
In those heated moments that we all face in our relationships, let two words ring in your ears. Christ died. When we respond this way, we will experience tears instead of the fears of being slighted.
