Throughout my years as a pastor and counselor, I have many times heard a wife say something like, “I know I should forgive him. When we are hurt or upset by what our spouse has done, we must remember what God has done for us through His love and grace. How could anything we give up to forgive our spouse compare to what Jesus Christ gave up for us? Because we know it is God’s will that we forgive, this scripture tells us we know God will answer. We have discussed before the first and greatest purpose in marriage is to show how God loves all of us. Next week, we will continue our study on the important role confession and forgiveness play in marriage. In light of God’s forgiveness to you, what is your attitude about how you should respond when your spouse does something you see as wrong against you?
If you are unable to forgive your spouse because you have never received God’s forgiveness, please read about how to receive His forgiveness on this page: Meet Jesus. If you have any questions or prayer requests you would like us to answer personally, please send us an email through our Contact Us page.
A devoted husband and father, former pastor and seminary professor, who longs to grow closer to the likeness of Christ each day and share God's love and truth with everyone. Yeah, we’re all over the romance like a fly on honey, but the bearing part…that takes work! The author of the epistle (as with all of the epistles in this series, please read the entire epistle from your own Bible, along with this lesson) is unstated in the epistle itself.
Moses knew Jesus Christ as well as, and as clearly as, Abraham did centuries before him (see Who Is The LORD?). Everyone will get one opportunity, sooner or later (see the Fact Finder question below), to understand the Truth and obey it. 6:9 But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God [see What Does Word of God Mean To You?], so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. 11:11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
11:13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
11:20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come [see The First Meeting Of Israel And Esau]. Fact Finder: When will the "promise" to all of the faithful, who lived through all of history up to that day, be delivered? 1620: A group of 102 English settlers, later known as "pilgrims," including some who had been living in Holland, left Plymouth, England, bound for the New World. 1648: The Larger and the Shorter Catechisms, both produced by the Westminster Assembly the previous year, were approved by the British Parliament.
1776: During the revolution of the New England colonies that had been established by English pioneers over 150 years earlier, British forces under General William Howe captured New York City (named after England's Duke of York). 1916: The first deployment of tanks in battle - 49 British "Big Willies" participated in the Battle of The Somme during the First World War (listen to our Sermon The European World Wars).

1928: Scottish researcher Alexander Fleming discovered the antibiotic effect of penicillin. 1935: In Germany, the Nazis under the leadership of Adolf Hitler (see Presidential Quotes On War, Terrorism, Religion) enacted the Nuremburg Laws, beginning a program of violent religious and racial persecution. 1938: British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain flew to Germany to meet Adolf Hitler at Berchtesgaden, the first of two meetings to try and avoid the crisis over the Sudetenland. 1940: At the height of the Battle of Britain, Royal Air Force Hurricanes and Spitfires shot down 185 Nazi planes.
1972: Two former White House aides, Howard Hunt and Gordon Liddy, were added to the five men already charged with the break-in at the Watergate building during the Nixon regime. 24 So his servants took him out of the chariot and carried him in his second chariot and brought him to Jerusalem. 1 I will take my stand at my watchpost and station myself on the tower, and look out to see what he will say to me, and what I will answer concerning my complaint. 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
When you made that decision and invited Jesus into your life, it is important to know, did God hear you? To get to know God better, spend time in His word (the Bible) asking Him to reveal more of Himself to you and for Him to build your relationship with Him. But I just don’t see how I can ever forgive him for _____.”  Or a husband say, “I know I should forgive her.
And in order for us to forgive, we must have first experienced God’s forgiveness ourselves. You see, the only way to forgive our spouse and let go of whatever sin they have committed against us, is to remember our own sins forgiven by Christ. But a husband and wife cannot be a reflection of His love to others until they show love and grace to each other.
Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. How can we show Christ’s love to our spouse and to the world around us any more than to lay down our life–our pain and pride–by forgiving his or her sin against us? May God bless you as you seek to live a Christ-centered marriage and grow closer to one another and to Him.
Why not forgive him or her right now, and ask God to give you the gracious love you will need to do this and live this out? One of God’s greatest blessings to me has been the gift of a great forgiver as my husband. I try to remember this when I find myself having a hard time forgiving…even saying it out loud to myself on repeat if I have to. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
While many believe that the apostle Paul is the most likely and logical source, there remain other possibilities, some who are known by name from other Scriptures. It was from him that the Messianic "seed of Abraham" would come (see Israel In History and Prophecy: Roots and Branches).
The identity of "the LORD God" is the key to understanding the Holy Scriptures (again, see Who Is The LORD?

Those who choose to reject the Messiah's offer of salvation will, according to their choice, be rejected for salvation. 6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love [see Works Means Obedience], which ye have showed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
11:31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not [see The Faith Of Rahab], when she had received the spies with peace. The Maccabees led the people of Judah to independence after the original "abomination of desolation" was committed in Jerusalem by the Syrian king Antiochus Epiphanes (see A History Of Jerusalem: Abomination Of Desolation).
These two documents have been in regular use among various Presbyterians, Congregationalists and Baptists from that time. It became the first vehicle to fly around the Moon and then return and re-enter the Earth's atmosphere. 36 For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be my disciples. We are encouraged to “Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
This month in A Couple’s Bible Study we will study this life-giving commandment and learn how to love each other with God’s grace through confessing and forgiving.
Whoever it was, it seems that the author was as much a Hebrew as the intended readers, and was a recognized and respected teacher of the Gospel. 11:15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 11:28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
And I’m so thankful He gives us the ability to do it…otherwise, where would we be? He was an ally of the Sadducees and persecuted their opponents, the Pharisees (see The Origin Of The Essenes, Sadducees And Pharisees). 25 Jeremiah also uttered a lament for Josiah; and all the singing men and singing women have spoken of Josiah in their laments to this day. Jesus took our sins on Himself and covered us with His righteousness, making us fully forgiven and fully accepted by Him.
If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. We will show the world what being a Christ-follower is really all about and what a difference He makes in a life and marriage. My sweet Catholic grandmother gave us the secret of her 60 year long marriage once: acceptance! We don’t have to first live good lives, or perform religious rituals, or spend years begging Him.
