Forgiveness is one of the dominant themes in the Scripture and is central to our experience as Christians. At the heart of the matter, it is our relationship with God and our relationship with others. Jesus talks about forgiveness a lot and even inscribes it on the template for our prayers (Matt. 6:9-13). Even though forgiveness is hard, we find the power to forgive as we marvel at the gift of total forgiveness in Christ. In Christ, every single sin has been washed away. There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Rom 8:1). We stand forgiven at the cross, therefore, we are able to forgive others!
