TGIF (Thank God I’m Forgiven).2

TGIF


Have you ever needed forgiveness in your life?

How do we define forgiveness?

A Christian writer puts in more clearly this way when he views forgiveness with a wonderful aroma. Forgiveness is the perfume a flower leaves on the heel that crushed it. It is an undeserved grace that one who is sinned against grants the one who sinned against them. The word “grace” means literally in the original Greek “unmerited favor”.

It is through God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness that we have the forgiveness of our sins. Every man has sinned before God. The issue of our forgiveness doesn’t rest on us. It rest on God because we have been forgiven in him.

1 John 8-10 “If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.”

When Jesus hung on the cross, He being God, showed the perfect example in the attitude we must have in forgiving others.

He said, “Father forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Lk 23:34.
