Luke 7: 41-43 Jesus said, "There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me. thereforeh, which of them will love him more?" Simon answered and said, "I suppose the one whom he forgave more."
The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
2 Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are Gods.
For Christians, we have been bought with a price – the precious price of the blood of Jesus and have new hearts that love God and desire to please God.
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
Some people ask me how it is possible to forgive others. The answer is that in light of the vast number of sins that God has forgiven me, I forgive others. One of my favorite Bible passages to help explain this is from Matthew 18.
