Every child of God is very interested in forgiveness. We should be very interested in forgiveness because we are great sinners. Believers love to hear the gospel cry that there is forgiveness of sin in the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:7).

Those who are forgiven must also be interested in being forgiving. From time to time a brother or sister will offend us. What should we do in that situation? Forgive them (Ephesians 4:32). We may have to give up some right or cast aside some pride, but do what it takes to forgive. We are to forgive as Christ our Saviour has forgiven us. “Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye” (Colossians 3:13). It cost the Lord Jesus Christ His life to forgive my sin. Then I should be willing to sacrifice something of my own feelings and pride to forgive someone else.
