You Have Heard It Said: Forgive and Forget

This season I have been directing and producing short visual devotional videos with Netzer.org for Lent. Check out their website for more information, and take a few moments this week to watch, think, reflect, and pray.

  1. This is a great reminder of what forgiveness is. A continual act and a blessing not only for the one receiving forgiveness but also for the one giving. Forgiveness is an amazing thing. Clearly. To have a creator create something that will disappoint and require forgiveness time and time again is a beautiful depiction of grace. Although amazed and undeserved, I’ve not dealt with difficulties accepting forgiveness from God because I trust His word: 1 John 1:9 – If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I do, however, find it is much harder to receive that undeserved forgiveness from my fellow man. God’s forgiveness is perfect, whole and unconditional if we confess our sin. Man’s ability to do this will be flawed at times. Armed with this awareness, and if unchecked, it can give way to a propensity to cheapen the gift of forgiveness that someone will offer. This has been a reminder to me that more than likely forgiveness will be a process but it will purify and grow each party involved when we understand and follow Christ’s command and example.

  2. I really liked the part about remembering giving us the opportunity to walk in forgiveness everyday. That’s a beautiful thing!
