It Is Your Nature To Forgive.

Key Scripture


Ephesians 4:31-32

[31]Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior.

[32]Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.

 

Christ shows us the perfect example of what forgiveness looks like. He died for us, paying the price for our sins even while we were yet sinners. He didn’t consider that people may want to reject his love and sacrifice, he made it available anyways.

Romans 5

[8]But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

He made forgiveness of sins a gift to us. He didn’t expect us to pay for our sins. He paid for them and gave us the receipt of payment as a free gift. He shown us his unending and perfect love.

Ephesians 1

[7]He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.

Colossians 1

[14]who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.

As children of Abba we have his very nature. We have one spirit with him.

1 Corinthians 6

[17]But the person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him.

We are made in the image of Christ who is the image of God. Christ being the exact representation of the father revealed him to us. He not only revealed him to us. He revealed who we are to us as people made in his image.

He showed us forgiveness and as his Children we are to show other’s the same. We’re to reflect his kindness and good by extending forgiveness to others. In all purity and love we extend both to the deserving and undeserving.

In our world today it’s common to hear things like ‘cut them off, ‘you’re better on your own’. However, is this what the bible teaches? We’re taught to forgive even as we’ve been forgiven. It might not always be easy but itโ€™s who we are. We are made in the image of love and we reflect that very image everywhere we go.


PRAYER


Abba help me realize the depth of forgiveness I received and extend the same to others. Thank you for the gift of forgiveness I have in Christ.๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›
