Longing to Forgive
God announced long ago through all the prophets that his Messiah had to suffer; and he made it come true in this way. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that he will forgive your sins. If you do, times of spiritual strength will come from the Lord, and he will send Jesus, who is the Messiah he has already chosen for you. (Acts 3:18-20)
This entire Christmas season is about forgiveness. Jesus Christ came to forgive in order to restore a broken relationship between His Holy Father and us, mankind. Christmas truly is forgiving. God didn't just want to "kinda" forgive us. He wanted to Fully Forgive us...to make us right legally so that He could love us and show us love more than He had every done before.
1) Have you been forgiven by God? He's already done the work for you, have you received it and committed your life to God?
2) Have you forgiven yourself for things in the past?
3) Have you forgiven others for past hurts?
Christmas is all about Forgiveness. It is the greatest gift we will ever receive...and it is also the greatest gift that we can ever give...so give it to others-
