So which route are we going to choose? The one with detours through bitterness, resentment, and isolation—or the one offering freedom, wholeness, and connection to God and others?
Fortunately we are not left on our own to figure it out or to try to muster up forgiveness–we have been given a Helper, the Holy Spirit. And since forgiveness is such a high priority in heaven, the Holy Spirit will lead us down the road of forgiveness, for this is the road Jesus walks on.
We are ambassadors of Christ, and what is important to Him and to the kingdom of God, we are to represent to the world. Forgiveness is important. It’s the road that leads to peace. It’s the road that leads to relationship.
