Because of Jesus’s sacrifice for us, we are able to forgive and be forgiven.
During Jesus Christ’s life upon the earth, he taught others, performed miracles and spread His gospel. The last week of His life, He performed the greatest miracle of all, when He suffered for our sins and laid down His life.
He took upon Himself the sins of the world and suffered for each one of us. In the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus felt the weight of every sin and pain of every person who has ever lived, bleeding from every pore. He was betrayed, arrested, and crucified on the cross. This was a sacrifice only He could make, and He did it willingly because He loves us.
We all make mistakes we cannot fix, experience losses we cannot recover, and face pain and disappointment that we can’t handle alone. Because of Christ’s sacrifice we don’t have to.
Jesus commands us to forgive those who wrong us. It may be very difficult to forgive others that have hurt or offended us, but when we ask for help, Christ can give us the strength to overcome feelings of anger and bitterness.
Jesus has the power to forgive completely. When we repent and rely on Him, we will become clean again.
Jesus Christ loves us and wants to help us. Through His grace, we can receive divine help or strengthening to do things that we would not be able to do on our own.
Because Jesus Christ suffered for all of our sins and pains personally, He knows us perfectly. He loves us and want us to rely on Him through trials and hardships. He knows exactly what we are going through and knows how to help us.
