Forgiveness is Big

Forgiveness opens the door to our relationship with God.

Forgiveness is big in God’s eyes. Very big. Without His forgiveness of our sins, we couldn’t get near God because He wouldn’t get near us. We should thank God every day for His forgiveness, which opens the door to our relationship with Him.

A lot of us think forgiveness is a one-way street. We become aware of God’s forgiveness, accept God’s forgiveness through Jesus Christ, and then go about our lives. But God asks more of us. He wants us to forgive others, especially those who have hurt us deeply.

Let’s be honest. That’s a very tough assignment. We find it very difficult to forgive those who have hurt or offended us. And yet that’s exactly why God asks us to do it. Forgiveness is very big in God’s eyes, and it needs to be very big in our eyes as well.

You must make allowance for each other’s faults and forgive the person who offends you.

Colossians 3:13
