FORGET OFFENSES TO TRULY FORGIVE AND BE SET FREE

God is always willing to forgive us

WORD OF GOD IS THE LIGHT TO YOUR PATH!

WORD OF GOD IS THE LIGHT TO YOUR PATH!

How have you experienced God’s forgiveness?

Come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts.

1 Kings 19:3-4 
Even if he wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, forgive him.

Luke 17:4 

About this week’s promise

Since forgiveness is an expression of love, a person whose life has an endless supply of love should be demonstrating an endless supply of forgiveness. We can experience unlimited love in our relationship with God. It is this resource that makes it possible for us to forgive others again and again. First, we recognize that God forgives us time and time again. Second, we want to express God’s love in a world that needs desperately to witness it.

Along the way you’ll see what real forgiveness looks like in everyday life and relationships.


It is far better to forgive and forget than to hate and remember.
