Grace is the Christian’s true empowering agent. It’s not just there to forgive sin but, by the Holy Spirit, it’s there to give us the ability to conquer sin.
When you’re struggling emotionally with forgiveness, look beyond the pain you feel to understanding why the other person has done wrong. This kind of thinking is revolutionary, perhaps even intimidating, because it forces us to look at ourselves in a more critical light in a time when we want to be comforted.
But pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone may be the only way to actually make a positive difference in our lives.
