Of Forgiveness

Apostle Grace Lubega

Matthew 18:21-22(KJV); Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

Of ForgivenessAs a new creature in Christ, forgiveness is a default setting.

You are born of love. Because you are, you cannot struggle with forgiveness.

Struggling with forgiveness means that you have not understood what you have been born of.

God Himself has set the pattern for us.

He has cast our sins as far as the East is from the West. He said that though our sins were as red as crimson, He washed them as white as snow.

What about Christ at Calvary? The Bible says that even in the midst of the pain, the beatings and the insults, He cried: “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”

In Micah 7:18, the Bible says “Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger forever, because he delighteth in mercy.”

God DELIGHTS in mercy. It means that He does not keep grudges. In fact, for His children, He does not want the sun to go down on their anger.

Anger and bitterness are not your portions in Christ.

You may think that letting go of that person who hurt you and ill-treated you is the hardest thing to do but that is not so, child of God.

It is a part of your nature to forgive because you are the fruit of love.

Forgive and let go.

As a new creature in Christ, forgiveness is a default setting.

PRAYER: Loving Father, thank you so much for this day. Thank you for your Word. It works effectually in me. I am begotten of love and choose to forgive, to turn the other cheek because your love constrains me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
