God is so loving and kind that of course He will forgive us.
That sentiment has no place whatever in the New Testament. The only ground on which God can forgive us is the tremendous tragedy of the Cross of Christ;
The forgiveness we are so quick to talk about and receive was not easy to provide. Oh that I would care to forgive people to the extent that I pay the cost and not them. Amazing. How many times do I declare that circumstances are not fair, people treated me wrongly, I have been hurt. And within that experience what if, not only did I forgive them but I did it in a way that was a great cost to me, like Jesus did? And my only motive? Love.
Wow! Imagine that idea.
Sometimes the cost is very hard.
But in my life, it's never been this hard.
It seems so trite to say but
Thank you Jesus
