Forgiveness, the thread that runs through all of scripture, changes everything. Why do we, the forgiven, harbor resentment against others when we could, instead, experience so much joy and freedom by hearing the call of those who whisper, “Forgive me”?
It just doesn’t get any better than this! No matter what this world throws at us, we can live in joy because we are Christians. Take the word of the man who was writing from prison to those who were suffering for their faith.
