Have you ever screwed up big and because of it lost a friend or spouse? The relationship just didn’t survive what happened. Most of us can say yes to this happening at least once; either we screwed up or they did but the result was the same: the end of a great relationship.

Have you screwed up with God? Done something really bad that you are sure He could never forgive and you don’t have the courage to come to Him and even ask if He will forgive you because you are sure there is no way He can?

Well I am here to tell you He already did. Whatever you did, the price for it has already been paid by Jesus’ death (Titus 3:5, 1 John 1:9). There is nothing you can do that will make God mad enough to take away His gift of salvation it is yours forever once you have received it.

This Christmas you will be surrounded by family and friends, and some of them will screw up and hurt you. When they do remember that God gave you the gift of forgiveness. Maybe you can show them His love for them by forgiving your loved one as God forgave you. Give them another chance and another and another and another… (Matthew 18:21-22) Just like God gives us.
