The Story of God: Forgiveness

Matthew 18:15-35, NRSV

Reflections

When Christ’s promise defines possibilities, memories of the traumatic past become for us just that — memories of one segment of our past. They need not colonize the present nor invade the future by defining what we can do and become. Past wrongdoing suffered can be localized on the timeline of our life-story and stopped from spilling forward into the present and future to flood the whole of our life.

— Miroslav Volf

  • Commitment to the truth
  • Surrender to mercy – but not a consent for others to sin against us
  • Was it hard for God to perform all these miracles?
  • Jesus carrying the cross is the hardest thing for Him and God
  • It is wrong to say it isn’t hard for God to forgive
