Forgiveness Quotes

Forgiveness must be immediate, whether or not a person asks for it. Trust must be rebuilt over time. Trust requires a track record. If someone hurts you repeatedly, you are commanded by God to forgive them instantly, but you are not expected to trust them immediately, and you are not expected to continue allowing them to hurt you.
Rick Warren   -    What On Earth Am I Here for?

In the shadow of my hurt, forgiveness feel like a decision to reward my enemy. But in the shadow of the cross, forgiveness is merely a gift from one undeserving soul to another.
 Andy Stanley, It Came from Within!

Jesus says that those who live by God’s forgiveness must imitate it. A person whose only hope is that God will not hold his faults against him forfeits his right to hold others’ faults against them.
Dr. David Jeremiah, Prayer the Great Adventure

There are some facts that will never change. One fact is that you are forgiven.  If you are in Christ, when he sees you, your sins are covered-he doesn't see them.  He sees you better than you see yourself.

God’s forgiveness extends to the worst offenders and to anyone who wishes to receive it - not because of who we are, but because of who He is.

Forgiveness will help you more than the person you forgive.

 Joyce Meyers, the power of simple prayer

You have been forgiven, so act like it!
 A. W. Tozer

Thinking about forgiving is not enough. You must come to a moment when you say, “With God's help I now forgive.”
