PostSubject: Kingdom of Forgiving   Sun Aug 17, 2014 5:12 pm

"And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors." MATTHEW 6:12

We live in a world where it is common to hold grudges against one another, to sue and to demand rights. Jesus clearly taught that the kingdom of God is for those who are forgiven and those who forgive others. As God forgives us by the merits of Jesus' atoning blood, so we forgive others.

A new and exciting way of living in the freedom of forgiveness is possible through the Holy Spirit. The hallmark of Christ's followers around the entire world is their willingness to lay down their own rights and forgive. This is not a sign of weakness but of phenomenal strength. There is more power in one act of forgiveness than in a thousand acts of hateful revenge.

Just because the citizens of the kingdom of God forgive others does not mean that they have low ethical standards. On the contrary, true followers of Jesus Christ seek to live holy lives, enabled by the power of the Holy Spirit. They hate sin but love the sinner, knowing full well that Jesus hated their own sin so much that He went to the cross to pay the penalty for it. It becomes natural to forgive others when one comes to realize their own sinfulness and how much it cost Jesus to forgive us.

Insight: The freeing power of Christ's atoning work lets us forgive others and bask in the forgiveness He's purchased for us.

Dear Lord, Help me to realize how much it cost Jesus to purchase our salvation. Let me not ignore the greatest gift mankind has ever been given. For Hebrews 2:3 states: how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him.  I want to know of God's great salvation plan and the true depth of His forgiveness. I want His grace so I too can show grace to others.  In Jesus' Name Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
