Coffee and Colossians 90 – Forgiveness

Colossians 3:13 – Christ died to forgive us. We are expected to forgive others….but it isn’t always easy. How do we get rid of the bitterness and poison of grievance?

Coffee and Colossians 89 – Chosen, Holy and Dearly Loved


  1. A couple of things. Firstly, I wonder if the following is just me or is it common to folk my age (76): As one ages one re-sees (is there such a term?) incidents that have marred ones life. Having a number of such I’ve found that I see them in terms of the failings / background of the agents of such hurts and can, now, let them go. I look at the immense, life-long blessings that I have received from the Lord against which such hurts loose their power and crumble. Secondly, just about the only things that could persuade me of a millenial argument is that it might give me just enough opportunity to get around apologising to those I’ve hurt!

  2. One of the best talks on forgiveness I have ever heard was given by Joni Eareckson Tada in 2012. It’s still on You Tube – True Woman ’12 – Forgiving like you’ve been forgiven. One comment she made was very similar to yours David – ‘No one has offended you more than you have offended Jesus Christ’. I have to remind myself of that often.
