We Need More Grace

Good Tuesday morning to you! If we want to be more like Jesus, we have to learn to love, serve and forgive others. These can be very hard to learn, especially forgiveness. Paul says:

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. – Colossians 3:13 (NIV)

How did the Lord forgive us? He forgave us ALL of our sins and transgressions. Then He chose to forget them. The Bible says that when God forgives, He chooses to forget and not hold our sins against us anymore. This is how the Lord has forgiven us. This is how we are to forgive each other. It means that we have to be willing to forgive, even if they don’t ask for it. Let’s face it, that’s hard. Forgiveness requires grace. We need God’s grace to forgive us and His grace to help us forgive others. May He give us more grace.
