• “God’s refusals are always merciful…God never denies us our hearts desire except to give us something better.” – Elisabeth Elliot

More Than a Method by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/07/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: It might seem like there’s a point at which forgiveness is impossible—until we look at Jesus.

He was despised and hated, ridiculed, humiliated, betrayed, and beaten. What was His response to this kind of treatment? He said, “Father forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”

If Jesus could offer forgiveness to those who were crucifying Him, you and I should be able to offer forgiveness to those who wrong us—no matter how painful.

The good news is that we don’t have to do it alone. The same One who offered forgiveness on the cross can live through us and give us His ability to forgive.

“To be a Christian,” C. S. Lewis said, “means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in us.”

When it comes to forgiveness, our Lord would not command us to do something that He would not enable us to do, or that He hasn’t done Himself.
