"Nothing is too bad that cannot be forgiven…"
"As far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us."
And He remembers them no more… (Hebrews 10: 17)
Our inability to forgive those who have hurt us poisons our soul and corrodes our heart. It is not the easiest thing to do; but it is the right thing to do. It is one of the ways in which the Lord sets us free. It is how we drop the chains. It is one of the main acts of humility we can offer to the Most High. It is how we remember, honor and acknowledge that we too are forgiven without deserving it.
It is a statement of trust. Forgiveness tells God that we believe Him when He says:
It is mine to avenge; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them." (Deuteronomy 32: 35)
If we wait in Him, He will avenge us. (Proverbs 20: 22)
He has a plan. His plan is perfect. He is Faithful and He will do what He promised. At this time of preparation for Easter, let’s prepare our heart to not only receive, but also to offer true forgiveness...to others as well as to ourselves...
