Jesus Doesn’t Make Us Pay

Jul 3, 2021

People.  Will.  Sin.  Against.  Us.   It’s never a matter of will it happen, but when it will happen.  It’s never a matter of will it hurt, but how much it will hurt.  The question is:  what will we do about it?  The normal response is to burn with vengeance inside.  The natural reaction is to bring on vengeance outside.  We want to make people pay. But Jesus modeled a different way of handling the wrongs of others.  The way of love.  The way of forgiveness.  The way of kindness.  The way of good.  The way of grace.  Jesus doesn’t make us pay for our sins; He made the payment Himself. We who have received grace should be the quickest to extend it.
