It's All About Grace - Part 2: Grace Forgives
Scripture: Ephesians 4:1–4:7, Ephesians 4:30–4:30
Forgiveness was perfectly demonstrated by Christ on the cross when He bore the sins of all of us for all time even though He was innocent. Forgiveness is not about circumventing God’s justice and does not deny the pain. Forgiveness allows us to release the hurt so we can move on. It is extended even thought it is not earned and even if the offender never repents or apologizes. It is a gift of grace that is not deserved. When we experience God’s grace we are to forgive others.
