Saved By Grace

Saved By Grace

Wednesday, May 25, 2016


I have been reading about forgiveness. There are very many passages in the Bible concerning forgiveness. Some very reassuring and some very troubling. It's like a tool that can be used for its intended purpose or a tool  misused with a poor outcome.
“Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.


Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.” — Matthew 18:21–22

I read a quote from a secular website that goes something like this: "To forgive is to set a prisoner free, and then realize the prisoner was you".
I think this is a very good summary of both the good and bad consequences of forgiveness.
Much love, Dennis
