Dear God-tracker

Matthew 6:12
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.


Jan felt the pain rising up in her chest. Rod was sitting across the table from her with his head in his hands and his fingers moist with tears. He had just confessed to being unfaithful to his wife. "I I am very, very sorry. I was wrong. I sinned. Please forgive me," said Rod.

Rod and Jan had been married for 12 years. Neither of them had so much as toyed with the idea of an extramarital relationship. Sadly, an old friend had come back into their lives; a woman Rod had known before his marriage. Rod had dropped his guard and the devil took advantage of his weakness. Now he sat before his wife in unconditional apology and repentance. Jan knew well it would take a long time to heal this dilemma but she had one of two choices: to become bitter and retaliate or to unconditionally forgive.

Jesus hung on a savage cross. Blood from the spikes in his wrists dripped from his skin to the dirt below. His eyes were swollen shut and his jaw throbbed with pain from the beatings. Torn and wounded, the Son of God groaned. His lips moved. Those closest to him heard his stilted tones, "Father, forgive them." How could this man forgive those that had just condemned and crucified him unjustly? Yet, even before repentance was on his accusers' lips, Christ forgave.

Forgiveness is unqualified. God chose to forgive you of your sins even before you were born. The crucifixion of Christ almost 2000 years ago made forgiveness available to you today. By his grace, when you finally realised your folly and confessed your sin, in repentance, his forgiving became your forgiveness. Forgiveness predates apology. Forgiveness is a mind-set we choose to adopt, because God has forgiven us. Jesus taught us to pray, "Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors."

Forgiveness heals the offended. Whatever offence you have endured, you have only two options before you: become bitter and retaliate or to forgive unconditionally.

God-tracking is living with an attitude of unqualified forgiveness

Help me to take your example of forgiveness to forgive

"Dear Lord, I realise now that I have been harbouring unforgiveness in my heart. I am sorry, Lord. I realise that unforgiveness will only destroy me. So I confess unforgiveness as a sin and repent of it. I now choose to confess forgiveness of this person who has offended, even if they choose not to apologise. Help me to offer un-qualified forgiveness; to forgive without saying, 'I forgive you but' And now I pray that this forgiveness on my lips will sink down into my heart. Help me to take your example of forgiveness to forgive. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen."
