“as we have forgiven our debtors”. Forgiving others is not a prescription for how we have assurance of our own sin forgiven, but rather a prayer that we might truly live as those created in the image of God. As His people, we seek to live out his will on earth and in so doing to honor his name throughout the earth. To reflect his image, we forgive. In God’s kingdom fractured relationship are healed and restored. Does the Christian community reflect God’s loving forgiveness in the world? Do I? We want to be like you, our heavenly Father. Amen.
