Forgiveness

Can we forgive others? Or are we the only ones worthy of being forgiven? Should we be forgiven and spared punishment for our sins, while others must suffer for their sins? Are we special, or are our sins less grievious to God? Isn’t sin, sin, and a separation from God? Satan’s goal is to cause everyone to sin in some form or another, and he has succeded. “There is none righteous, no not one.” “All have fallen short of the glory of God.” “If we say that we are without sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us, but if we confess our sins, God who is faithful and just will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
All of mankind is in the same boat. Satan has attacked each of us and caused us to separate from God because of our sins. But God offers to forgive us through His Son Jesus. He doesn’t just offer to forgive certain sins or sins against certain people. His offer is to forgive all sin. It is a free gift, open to all; just as our forgiveness should be for others, so that no one is excluded from God’s love and forgiveness – not even ourselves.
