“Forgive and Forget” is a phrase we hear so often, yet the reality of these words is so much deeper than what meets our ears. We must not mistake forgiveness to be a denial of wrong-doing. It does not translate to allowing our wounds to remain or letting someone off the hook, but rather forgiveness means we’re acting the way God acts toward us. And that is a place of Freedom.
The end result of any freedom apart from God is slavery, it is chaos, it is restlessness and lack of peace. St. Augustine puts it very accurately – “Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in thee.”
This video (recorded for @aflame_ministries ) uncovers some fundamental truths on the subject of forgiveness through the Cross of Christ. I hope that it will bring you the encouragement you need to embrace the gift of forgiveness today!
