A constant stream of forgiveness

Mat 6:14-15

For if you *forgive men* their offenses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive men their offenses, neither will your Father forgive your offenses.

“Forgive men” means the whole human race without exceptions. We are to hold forth forgiveness to all, at all times, right in the face of offense to us and to God.

Yes, if they have not bowed the knee to Jesus Christ then God has not forgiven them, true. Jesus Christ is the Righteous judge of the living and the dead.

But that is not our calling, our calling is to forgive all, instantly, continuously: a constant stream of forgiveness flowing out from our inner man.

Even we when have the tough call of separating from the “bad leaven” in christendom, the constant stream of forgiveness – grace must keep flowing.
