We Must Learn To Forgive Ourselves
Written by Rise & Shine on March 30, 2021
Forgiveness is a difficult thing to give in general. But sometimes, the hardest person to forgive is ourselves. We know what we did. And the enemy will gladly remind us as often as he can. But at Easter were reminded that Jesus even took care of those sins and mistakes too.
Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness. And rivers in the desert.
Isaiah 43: 18-19
When Jesus cried out “It is finished!” (John 19:30) it was a declaration, not a question. Here’s your encouragement for the day beloved. Don’t fall to the temptation to remember the things you should forget. (You know, the things that have been forgiven by Christ in your repentance). And conversely, don’t give in to the temptation to forget the things you SHOULD remember. (You know, because of Christ’s sacrifice, you ARE forgiven).
But if you do err; always try to err on the side of Christ’s Grace. Even towards yourself.
