Forgiveness

Forgive AND forget – DL Moody

Forgive AND forget – DL Moody

Forgiveness is not that stripe which says, “I will forgive, but not forget.” It is not to bury the hatchet with the handle sticking out of the ground, so you can grasp it the minute you want it.

Chief danger of our times – William Booth

Chief danger of our times – William Booth

The chief danger of the 20th century will be religion without the Holy Spirit, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and heaven without hell.

Reconciliation with God – Thomas Chalmers

Reconciliation with God – Thomas Chalmers

Christ is able to save to the uttermost. He addeth intercession now to the atonement which he hath already made once for all. What a blessed apparatus of reconciliation with God! He who pleadeth for us at God’s right hand is omnipotent to save – and willing as He is able.

– Thomas Chalmers –
1780-1847

Forgiveness – Henry Ward Beecher

Forgiveness – Henry Ward Beecher

I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note – torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one.

– Henry Ward Beecher –

The battle between sin and forgiveness – Charles Spurgeon

The battle between sin and forgiveness – Charles Spurgeon

You cannot sin so much as God can forgive. If it comes to a pitched battle between sin and grace, you shall not be so bad as God shall be good. I will prove it to you. You can only sin as a man, but God can forgive as a God. You sin as a finite creature, but the Lord forgives as the infinite Creator.

– Charles Spurgeon – 
from the sermon “The Exceeding Riches of His Grace,” on Ephesians 2:7
