Forgiveness Is Not An Option

And when you stand praying,
if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them,
so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
- Mark 11:25 -

Forgiveness is the very core of the gospel message.

We are Christians only because God forgave us everything.

There is no other ground on which we stand.

It was not our repentance.

It was not our praying the sinner’s prayer.

Nothing made us children of God except God forgave.

And God did it through His Son on the cross 2000 years ago.

Jesus took all that sin and nailed it to the cross.

And He commanded us to do the same.

We must keep to Jesus’ teaching.

We must learn to forgive.

Let us learn to let go of our right for revenge.

Let us try not to be bitter.

Let us forgive others their sins just as God had forgiven ours.

Thank you for the reminder, for the help not to stumble. The forgiveness id not an option but the evidence (the outcome) of the faith.
