The profound act of forgiveness that comes through Jesus death and resurrection as stated during the last supper overwhelms and is hard to comprehend. I am forgiven.
26-29 During the meal, Jesus took and blessed the bread, broke it, and gave it to his disciples: Take, eat. This is my body. Taking the cup and thanking God, he gave it to them: Drink this, all of you. This is my blood, God’s new covenant poured out for many people for the forgiveness of sins. “I’ll not be drinking wine from this cup again until that new day when I’ll drink with you in the kingdom of my Father.” (Matthew 26: 26-29 MSG).
I am forgiven. It is a statement I need to say to myself over and over. It is easy for me to slip back into old beliefs and old patterns of not being enough. Reminding myself that I am forgiven, that I have God’s unconditional love and grace re-centers me, reminds me whose I am. God’s love for me is so complete, so perfect that He sent His son to die for me. He sent His son to show me my value and a new way to live.
I am forgiven means I live a life of grace and mercy for others. It means I show the love that came from a cross to those in my life.
The death and resurrection of Jesus changed the world and changed me. Has he changed you? Share your experience here and breathe life and bring hope to others.
