Carrying on from last post, the cross is also powerful to forgive. This is God’s way to forgive the sin in our lives. Our sin or tendency to dark, selfish acts in whatever form is what displeases God, but God’s way to forgive us is the power of the cross.
God’s forgiveness when it is felt is liberating. The burden of sin is lifted off one’s life. Only God can forgive in this kind of way, that goes to the very heart of a person and sets one free.
God’s forgiveness is wonderful. It is so wonderful that God’s forgiveness can enable us to forgive those who have offended us, if we can truly appreciate how God has forgiven our own sins. One who loves much, has been forgiven much.
