Grace for you today !
Behold Jesus the Resurrection and Life and experience His Power of New Creation to forgive now !
And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” John 20:22-23 NKJV
The moment the Risen Lord Jesus breathed into the lives of the disciples, they became New Creation! And the first thing the Lord taught on the power of New Creation was to forgive sins.
As a New Creation, I have the power to forgive sins or retain sins. Man can either commit sins against God ( vertical relationship ) or against his fellow human ( Horizontal relationship ).
On God’s own part, He has forgiven the sins of the whole human race – past, present and future sins completely through Jesus!
But, on the Human side, to forgive a fellow human , it takes one’s sincere determination to forgive him or her. Sometimes the betrayal is so grave that the hurt is so deep & we really struggle to forgive and forget. But when we become a New Creation, the power to “Let go” is in us and this grace of letting-go helps us to forgive.
The missionary, Graham Staines was mercilessly burnt alive along with his lovely two little sons by those to whom Staines and his family went to share the Love of Jesus with . It became a National news and the culprits were caught.
However, the wife of Graham Staines and his precious daughter took a call to forgive them whole heartedly because they were a New Creation, having the power to forgive – simply as divine as God . New Creation is divine , eternal, invincible, incorruptible and indestructible. Amen 🙏
Praise Jesus !
