Part 7: How to forgive

(This is part 7 of 10 parts in this class)


Paul also writes to the faithful in Christ Jesus,

Forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

Ephesians 4:32 - NKJV


Look at that exhortation. How does it say you are to be forgiving one another? It says you are to be forgiving as God forgave you! This means in the same way; in the same dimension! How has God forgiven you? The Bible tells us,

As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.

Psalm 103:12 - NKJV


That sounds as if they're off out in infinity to me and that's what God did with your transgressions (sins) when you came to Him through Jesus. The same thing is expressed by the prophet Isaiah as he calls upon God,

You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, for You have cast all my sins behind Your back.

Isaiah 38:17 - NKJV


So God not only forgives you but also puts your sins out of His sight so that He ceases to remember them against you.
