It is easy to get fed up isn’t it, especially when they keep doing it to you over and over and over again? Enough is enough. If they do it one more time, I’m never speaking to them again. Peter thought he was being pretty generous when he asked Jesus if he should forgive a brother in the faith seven times.
How it is that we so continuously sin against our holy God. Not seven times in a life or seven times a year or even seven times a day. So great is the debt that we owe our heavenly Father that we could never repay it.
So great is God’s love for us in Christ Jesus. He has forgiven us in Christ that which we could never repay, not seven times or 70 times. For everyone in Christ he forgives us each and every one of our sins, now and into eternity.
