Two of the hardest statements to say, are "I am sorry" and "I forgive you." We learn the discovery of true forgiveness and that it is in God's very character to forgive sin. True forgiveness is also found in the communication of Jesus Himself (what he said, what he revealed). If we are not gripped and moved by Jesus's cry of forgiveness from the cross and if we fail to forgive those who sin against us, we reveal that we have never understood forgiveness and call into question the genuineness of our faith.
