All Is Forgiven

Hebrews 10:11-18

Day after day, the Old Testament priests offered blood sacrifices and burnt offerings to atone for the sins of God’s people. Then Christ came, and His one sacrifice was powerful enough to do away with all that. His holy DNA commuted our death sentence to eternal life.

Yet, still today, even knowing Christ’s powerful example of forgiveness we find it hard to do the same. A man spent seventeen years in prison falsely accused of a crime. Though confined, he never gave up trying to prove his innocence. Day after day, week after week, he waited for his life sentence to be overturned. Then, after filing another appeal, a judge ordered a DNA test on evidence from the crime scene. The results exonerated the man. Upon his release, he filed a lawsuit against the state. Instead of forgiving and moving forward, he focused backward on his past incarceration.

Don’t live in the shadow of regret, remorse, and revenge. Live in the light of His love.
