Class 10: How To Love!


Previous Part

Part 5: God's love forgives

(This is part 5 of 10 parts in this class)


How is it possible to overlook wrongs against us? Simply because God's love forgives! God's love in our hearts causes us to let resentment drop, forgiving and forgetting the wrong. God's love forgives unreservedly.

"Well, I could never do that. You don't know some of the things people have done to me and my love ones." Listen to me. You are the one you harm most by taking that stand. Your inner life gets disfigured by that resentment and it's not long before your external life exhibits that disfiguring.


You can forgive. Forgiveness is an outflow of God's love. The one that loves also forgives. You can't say, "I love but I don't forgive!" That's impossible; for where there is love, there is always forgiveness! Paul in his letter to the Colossians puts it this way,

Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

Colossians 3:13 - NIV


Let me conclude (this part) with Apostle Peter's words,

Love each other intensely!

1 Peter 4:8 - Barclay Translation
