The Power of Forgiveness by Ed Elliot

The Power of Forgiveness    
The same Jesus who forgave the woman caught in adultery, the thief on the cross, Peter for denying Him and those who beat Him and drove nails through His hands and feet is still the same Jesus today (Hebrews 13:8).
As the body of Christ, we should show the same compassion and mercy to those caught in similar situations as Jesus did.  Forgiveness isn’t condoning sin; it opens a door for the heart to receive mercy. God uses mercy to purge the heart of sin (Proverbs 16:6).  A person’s ability to forgive comes from knowing and believing how God has forgiven him/her.  You cannot give to others what you do not possess yourself.  You cannot lead others where you have not gone.
