Scriptures on forgiveness which directly quote Jesus have made a huge impact in my life. In fact, the first time I studied the entire Bible, I found these scriptures most memorable. In day-to-day life however, most of us struggle with forgiveness. We selectively forgive only individuals whom we deem repentant, deserving and rehabilitated. This rarely works because few offenders measure up to our subjective standards. Jesus, in contrast commanded us to forgive everyone, every time and for every offense. When Christ said, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” He meant it. Believers liberally forgive others because (through the finished work of Christ), God has alreadyforgiven all of our sins. Our kindheartedness toward others demonstrates (to God) who are truly His children.
