WHEN FORGIVENESS SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness …
Colossians 1:13 NIV
… and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 
Colossians 1:13 NIV
in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Colossians 1:14 NIV

The Perspective That Releases Forgiveness

“Therefore the kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. 24And when he had begun to settle accounts, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents. 25But as he was not able to pay, his master commanded that he be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and that payment be made. 26The servant, therefore, fell down before him, saying, ‘Master, have patience with me, and I will pay you all.’ 27Then the master of that servant was moved with compassion, released him, and forgave him the debt. 28But that servant went out and found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and he laid hands on him and took him by the throat, saying, ‘Pay me what you owe!’ 29So his fellow servant fell down at his feet and begged him, saying, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you all.’ 30And he would not, but went and threw him into prison till he should pay the debt.” Matthew 18:23-30 NKJV

The Pride That Kills Forgiveness

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

1 John 1:9-10 NKJV
