This month’s scripture writing theme is about Forgiveness
Forgiveness is a resounding theme in the Bible.
What is forgiveness?
It literally means to release or make free. In the case of sins, we are made free from paying the debt that is due because of what we have done against the Almighty God. In the case of things done against us by another person, we release them from paying or doing what was owed because of their actions.
But HOW do we do this? WHAT does it look like?
Forgiveness isn’t a moment. Forgiveness isn’t a singular mental decision.
Forgiveness is a process.
It must be sought by the one who has done wrong. The one who has been wronged must be ready to give it when it is requested. But even that can be hard to understand, depending upon the situation.
Fortunately, we have a FABULOUS book that is filled with a PERFECT example of forgiveness. And the example is shown many, many, many times so that we might learn the lesson well. That book, of course, is the BIBLE!
God shows us how to forgive. He also shows us how to ask for forgiveness.
We are told in Ephesians 4:32, “Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.”
“just as” – we need to know how He does it so we can imitate it
“God in Christ” – we need to know how Christ plays into our access to forgiveness.
