Forgiveness is a reflection of the character of God.
Throughout Scripture, we are reminded about God’s grace and forgiveness.
God makes us white as snow. (Isaiah 1:18)
God’s mercies are new every morning. (Lamentations 3:22-23)
God is faithful and just to forgive our sins. (1 John 1:9)
When our relationship with God was broken beyond repair, God offered His only Son as the way to forgive us and restore the broken relationship.
Since we are created in God’s image, we have the ability to offer forgiveness when people in our lives hurt us. God’s love in us makes it possible for us to forgive others and work towards fixing our own relationships that break down from time to time.
Jesus made it possible for us to have God’s forgiveness.
God’s showed us just how much He cares about forgiveness when He made the ultimate sacrifice and sent Jesus to pay the price for our sin. While sin separates us from God, He offers grace and forgiveness as a gift for us to receive. We have been forgiven of so much, it’s only right that we turn to those in our lives and offer forgiveness to them in return.
