THE WORK OF FORGIVENESS


"Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you."  (Colossians 3:13 NIV)

The law of Christ, which it is our duty to fulfill, is the bearing of the cross.  Thus the call to follow Christ always means a call to share the work of forgiving [others] their sins.  Forgiveness is the Christlike suffering which it is the Christian's duty to bear.

-- Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945)
