Another Little Word

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Colossians 3:13 bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if someone happens to have a complaint against anyone else. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also forgive others.

Here is another little 2 letter word, “as.” The Lord forgives us completely. He doesn’t demand restitution or pay back or “tit for tat”. He doesn’t bring it up again. He declares our sin as no longer in existence. Once forgiven they are forgotten. Our question is do we forgive others in the same way? If we truly forgive we won’t tell others what they did and we will ask God to forgive them.
