Forgiving the Past
“If only I hadn’t done that!”
“If only I could turn back the clock and undo it!”
We regret some words or actions, and wish it could be just wiped out. BUT the past CAN’T be wiped out. What’s done can’t just be forgotten. BUT it CAN be FORGIVEN.
The person we wrong most is God. And yet He takes it all, and He offers us forgiveness for it all. He offers us forgiveness because his son, Jesus, gave up his life for all our wrongs.
Knowing that, we can accept ourselves again, the way He accepts us. And it leads us to accept others who wrong us. It’s a new way to live.
