• “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22

Rich in Mercy by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/18/11

(voices arguing)

“I don’t like to even think about those arguments right before the divorce . . . it’s behind me.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Are you willing to forgive . . . everybody?

“There’s no way I could forgive the things he said.”

Nancy: Sometimes forgiveness seems impossible—until we realize what the Bible says about God’s forgiveness.

“God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions.”

Nancy: Thinking about how much God’s forgiven us will change the way we view other people’s sin.

“I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins.”

Nancy: Spend some time thinking about how much your sin has offended God and the incredible forgiveness He offers. It will make it easier to forgive those who have sinned against you.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
