Undeserved Forgiveness Grace Freely Given

Matthew 6: 14-15 NKJV

 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."

"She doesn't deserve my forgiveness! The evil that was done is just too great." This is the story my pastor's wife and Bible study leader, Eva Ruth, shared with us about someone in her life. Though Eva didn't feel this person deserved her forgiveness, she knew God's instruction. She knew that there was also a day when she didn't deserve forgiveness. The forgiveness Eva showed to the person wasn't deserved, but grace was freely given that day. The same goes for us, ladies. We didn't deserve the forgiveness that Christ offers. But again, undeserved forgiveness, grace was freely given.

Father, thank You for the forgiveness You show to us each and every day. The forgiveness was undeserved but the grace was freely given. Thank You Lord! In Jesus Name, Amen.
