The Bible is filled with reminders of God’s amazing grace and forgiveness for us: “God makes us white as snow.” Isaiah 1:18. “God’s mercies are new every morning.” Lamentations 3:22-23. “Lord, you are forgiving and good.” Psalm 86:5.
When sin entered the world, our relationship with God was broken beyond human repair. In response to this, God offered up his only Son as a way to forgive us and restore that broken relationship. Jesus’ sacrifice made it possible for us to have God’s forgiveness. As we are created in the image of God, we too carry the ability to offer the same forgiveness that God has lavished upon us.
This week let us look for ways to continually incorporate a forgiving spirit into our daily lives.
