Since believers have been forgiven,
they will forgive.
Since they have received good for evil,
they will repay evil with good.
Since, when they were enemies of God,
God loved them,
they will love their enemies.

Forgiveness

44909

To receive forgiveness
means to obtain a new future,
[that] my baggage
is taken off my back,
that another has picked it up
and bears it for me.

The miracle

The miracle is not . . .
to cast out demons, heal the sick
and turn multitudes to the faith.
The miracle is to be loved, forgiven,
and accepted by God.
