The amazing gift of Biblical Forgiveness is seriously misunderstood and highly underrated. Although Biblical forgiveness might seem hard, it benefits you in both this life and the next. Here’s how.
The Amazing Gift Of Biblical Forgiveness Is God’s Gift To You
God loves and forgives. And He offers that forgiveness with no strings attached. For this life and the next.
That is the most amazing…the most liberating message of the Gospel. That God doesn’t just love us. He wants an eternal relationship with us. And through Biblical forgiveness, we are released from the bondage of sin.
Sin is what weighs you down. Separates you from God. And makes Him seem distant. But He’s not. And you’ll discover that when the wall of sin comes down.
The Amazing Gift Of Biblical Forgiveness Is Your Gift To Others
The amazing gift of Biblical Forgiveness is not to be kept for yourself. But to share with others.
And honestly? This may seem daunting. Perhaps, you may even think, impossible. Because pain can run deep. And some ugly wounds appear beyond healing. But they aren’t.
Because all things are possible with God.
And in the same way that He sets us free, we in turn, can set others free. So that we all experience joy.
Biblical Forgiveness Is Your Gift To Yourself
Now that just sounds weird. Why would the victim…the one hurt, need to be set free? After all. You’re innocent! You didn’t ask to be injured. Violated. And besides, set free from what?
The fact is, that even as an innocent victim, over time, the pain can change into bitterness and resentment. Turning your heart dark. Robbing you of joy. Shutting you off from God’s love. Holding you captive.
And it eventually becomes your sin. Your prison.
But forgiveness releases it. Reopens your heart to give and receive God’s love. And restores your relationship with Him and others.
The truth? Forgiveness is not easy. Or instantaneous. But an ongoing process of turning the pain and bitterness over to God. And as you do, God’s Spirit restores and revitalizes your heart. Changing it now and forever.
