The Freeing Beauty Of Forgiveness

Matthew 18:35

This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you
unless you forgive your brother from your heart.

As Christians, we are called to forgive those who have wronged us. But “Why?”

Through the process of forgiveness, we realize we are not as different from the wrongdoer as we would like to think. And we end up linked on the same side.

God had linked Himself with us humans in the incarnation. He had to come to terms with us He desperately wanted to love. On earth, living among us, he learned what it was like to be human, yet without sin. But He put Himself on our side. God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us.

Forgiveness is a key component of the victorious overcomer.
This is the way of the cross to becoming “more than conquerors.”

Forgiveness is a must for us as followers of Jesus.

Thank you, Lord,
for the freeing beauty of forgiveness.
