The Face of Forgiveness
Rev. Dr. Johannes Christian
"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that,while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
(Romans5:7b, Holy Bible)
"And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors."
(Matthew 6:12, Holy Bible)
"...freely you have received, freely give."
God commended His love and grace towards us in that while we were yet in sin Christ died for us. This is the single most awesome thing in the world. Just to know that you were not saved because you were perfect, instead it's because God so loved the whole world that" He gave His only begotten Son" so that anyone who believes in Him would not perish, but receive eternal life. (Ref. John 3:16, Holy Bible)
Every day offenses occur and people do things that are extremely hurtful, destructive, and insulting to others. In such cases, justice demands an appropriate response from those who understand that righteousness must prevail just as "Righteosness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people."
As we journey through life let our quest be to forgive in accordance with Matthew 6:12, which pertains to forsaking, letting go, to go away leaving something behind, not to rehearse, to expire and give up a debt. In short, forgiveness is a decision to confront the issue at hand, deal with it once and for all and release it in order to move forward in life.
I want to encourage us to always remember to approach the subject and demand for justice in a non-violent manner. Yet, expect and require that justice is served fully and comprehensively with dignity and honor.
