This Sunday at Church: Forgive others

March 28, 2021 by SLIMJIM

 

For this Sunday here’s what you can do: Forgive others.

 

Ephesians 4:32 states: 

Be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

 

In a few weeks I will be preaching on this passage.  I can’t wait for that.

But the meaning is clear.  We are called to forgive.  Forgiving others is not easy.  But God also gives us grace to obey.  Not the second half of the verse gives us the motivation for obedience: “just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.“

We are forgiven.  Forgiven by God.  That is amazing.  The cost of course is Jesus.  Jesus dying on the Cross for us!

Being involved with church means interacting with sinners that God has redeemed; it would be naïve to think one won’t be hurt by someone and one need to forgive them.

In fact sometimes it feels God uses the church to teach us more about forgiving others than anything else.  In such a situation look towards Christ.

This post is important and I imagine the other “Sunday” posts would be hard to do if we don’t first forgive others.  Thanks for reading!
