Seeking God Through Forgiveness

Ephesians 4:31-32                February 28, 2016        Link for audio/video/manuscript

When we forgive we are acting according to God's character. Because of His love for us, He forgave us. When we forgive we act with grace, the grace that we have already received from God through Jesus Christ. Jesus did not lose his life at Calvary; he gave it so that we might know the freedom of forgiveness. The greatest blessing we can ever receive is the blessing of both freeing ourselves and those who have hurt us from the burden of sin. Jesus himself told us we are to forgive as we’ve been forgiven. When we chose Christ we also chose to sacrificially love and forgive and he did for us.
