Enormous Forgiveness

in Forgiveness/Unforgiveness

Here's today's Bible Minute with David Chadwick.

In Matthew 6:12, Jesus adjures all of His disciples to pray: "and forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors." The truth is, we need to realize God's one billion dollar forgiveness of our sins. Then, those who've hurt us, are only a thousand dollar indebtedness that we need to forgive.

The truth is, as we get in touch with God's enormous forgiveness of our sins, it is easier to forgive other people of their sins against us. Remind yourselves, dear friends, all day long that if you hold bitterness in your heart for those who've hurt you, that's like drinking arsenic and expecting the other person to die. It's just not very smart.

Receive God's forgiveness. Forgive other people. And the peace of God will be yours.
