Forgiveness is often easily spoken by the lips.
Why then do we choke in silence on the words?
Because the spirit is willing, yet the flesh is weak.
We continue to embrace
bitterness and resentment.
As Jesus forgives, so should we.
For Him that God exalted to His right hand
To be a prince and a saviour,
Gave repentance and
forgave our sins.
For you see, we utter the words, “I forgive.”
But we never forget.
At least He rose above the feelings of the flesh,
When asked who He was,
He replied, “ I am Jesus, whom thou persecutest.”
Yet His love overcame resentment.
And He repaid our
persecution with forgiveness.
Bread which came down from heaven.
Light of the world. Lover of our souls.
The good shepherd. The Son of Man.
Yea, the Son of God
If He can forgive us,
What right to we have to withhold forgiveness of others?
If He remembers not our sins,
Why do we not forgive
Created in His image, we should strive.
Strive to walk in His righteousness.
And let not that lump in our throats
Be a roadblock to His
blessings and glory.
