And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christs sake hath forgiven you.
– Ephesians 4:32
Forgiveness is letting go of the wrong and the hurt of this old world . And real evidence that the knowledge of Christ and his love has come into that heart. Forgiveness is the first flower of spring the firstfruits of summer and a godly life. The golden leaves of maturity and the barrenness of winter. dead to my old life with us grudges and bondage. free from cruelty, revenge and pride.
sanctification is at its root forgiveness and a tenderheart. Loving our enemies. Praying for those that despitefully use us. We bless those that curse us . We forgive and show mercy . We give the grace we have received from God. He is gracious and ready to forgive. We forgive because we are forgiven. We fogive in obedience. knowing the terror of the Lord. He is a consuming fire, we pray that they may escape the judgment and wrath to come as we have escaped by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. The Saviour
