By Don Ruhl

What if the Lord forgave us the way we do those who have sinned against us? For some people that would be a good thing, but for others it would not. When the Lord forgives, He also forgets, as the writer of the Book of Hebrews said when he quoted from Jeremiah,

“For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more” (Hebrews 8.12). 

We want the Lord to forgive us in that manner, but He wants us to forgive as He does.

Questions:

  • What keeps you from forgiving as the Lord does?
  • Do you know for sure that the Lord has forgiven you?
