God does not only grant forgiveness, he also grants a forgiving heart. A forgiven sinner has a forgiving heart. God’s grace to forgive is also his grace to give us the heart to forgive.
Ask for forgiveness, and it will be given to you. Ask for a forgiving heart and it will also be given to you. Ask that others will also have a forgiving heart like the Father and like you as one of his children, and it will be given to them as well. That’s our confidence in God’s gracious pardon.God’s Gracious Pardon: “Forgive Us Our Debts” Matthew 6:12 August 16, 2009 Download PDF | Download MP3
