Why Must We Forgive?
Jesus taught believers to pray, “Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors” (Matt. 6:12). Paul urged Christ’s followers to forgive one another as Christ forgave them (Col. 3:13). Christ gives Christians a mandate to forgive and provides a model of forgiveness that is necessary for healthy relationships. But what is forgiveness, and how should we practice it?
In How Should We Forgive?, Pastor Stanley Gale considers the nature of the forgiveness we receive from God, its role in our ongoing relationship with Him, and the way we must reciprocate by forgiving others as we have been forgiven.
