Prophetic Witness - April 2015Christ the Sovereign Saviour

Sovereign Grace

The first thing Jesus did when He got to His cross was to seek forgiveness or those who had placed Him on it. He interceded for pardon for His enemies by virtue of His blood now freely flowing.

What supreme magnanimity! How kingly and how kind! What triumph it was when, in spite of agony of body, He could yet realize the Fatherhood of God and plead for the forgiveness of a Fatherly heart as He died! In the morning of His life, even at the early age of twelve, His heart was warmed with the thought of a Father's love. And now, in the blackest hour of life, faith does not fail for He is still able to say, "Father" (Luke 23:34).

Do we reign with Christ in the matter of forgiveness? Are we tender-hearted, forgiving one another even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven us? What is our attitude when others wrong us? Our participation in the forgiveness of the cross demands - that we forgive until seventy times seven.
