Making Room for Jesus: Clearing out the clutter of UN-FORGIVENESS
"The Christian thinker C.S. Lewis once wrote, “To be Christian means to forgive the inexcusable in others because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.”
You see, friends, when it comes right down to it, forgiveness doesn’t really have anything to do with the inexcusable things someone did to you; instead, it has everything to do with the God who has forgiven the inexcusable in you and who calls you and commands you to “go and do likewise.”
Forgiveness is the antonym, the opposite, of revenge. And it is one of the fundamental characteristics of the kingdom of heaven and of God himself, who, in Jesus Christ, has already forgiven every single one of our sins on the cross. He has forgiven the inexcusable in us so we should forgive the inexcusable in others."
