the cost of forgiveness

Standard

“The love of God is spelled out on the cross and nowhere else. The only basis for which God can forgive me is the cross of Christ.”   J. Oswald Chambers

“Forgiveness wasn’t free or easy. It was hard. It was costly. It was painful. We can’t fully comprehend the agony Christ suffered on our behalf. But it was required to rescue you and me.

We’re called to forgive as we’ve been forgiven. That means when we’re hurt deeply, when forgiveness seems impossible—we accept the suffering forgiveness requires.

If forgiveness seems out of the question in one of your relationships, you have a great opportunity to be like Jesus and forgive.”  Nancy Leigh DeMoss
