In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. (Ephesians 1:7-10).
God is faithful and true, and He forgives our iniquities our perversity, and our sin. The following is a beautiful testimony of forgiveness.
A divorced man with seven daughters was given a chance to help his daughters start to heal emotionally from years of pain that he caused them, but he struggled within himself to make the right choice. Convinced they would never believe him, he was afraid that his daughters would not accept his apology.
He also struggled to forgive himself. We shared with him the power of Jesus Christ to forgive and to release us from all unrighteousness. We gave him the opportunity to make his life right with Jesus. He accepted the offer and prayed and asked the Father to forgive him and asked Jesus to be his Savior.
We began to explain to the man about his daughters’ need to hear him apologize to them so that they could start to heal. Without his sincere words of sorrow for the pain his iniquities caused, they would have a very difficult life. We asked him if this was what he wanted for them.
As sincere tears flowed from his eyes, he asked each one of his girls to forgive him. Each one fell into his arms and cried from the depths of their hearts.
This man made the right choice–he asked for the Lord to forgive him for his wickedness and then asked his daughters to forgive him as well. The Lord knew the sincerity of this man’s heart and pardoned his iniquities, his perversity, and his sin. And the Lord knows the sincerity of your heart as well. And He wills to give you another opportunity to make painful situations in your life right too.
