We’ve all felt the sting of betrayal, the pain of rejection, or the anguish of being wronged in one way or another. Some wounds run so deep that we wonder if forgiveness is even possible. Yet, despite the gravity of our hurts, the Bible insists that forgiveness is not only achievable but also essential for those who follow Christ.

In the journey of forgiveness, we often encounter three common reactions: avoidance, control, and revenge. We might try to bury the hurt, put up walls of protection, or seek revenge. However, these responses fall short of the biblical standard.

The truth is, forgiveness is not about excusing the offense or condoning wrongdoing. It’s about finding healing and freedom for ourselves, even in the face of unimaginable pain.

So, how do we begin the process of forgiving those who have deeply wounded us?

First, we must understand that forgiveness is not optional for Christians. Jesus taught us to forgive others as we ourselves have been forgiven by God. It’s a foundational principle of the Christian faith.

But forgiveness isn’t just a one-time decision; it’s a journey. We start by acknowledging the depth of our own forgiveness in Christ. Just as we have been forgiven, so too are we called to extend that same grace to others.

This perspective shift is crucial. We don’t forgive because others deserve it; we forgive because we have been forgiven. We don’t forgive to let the offender off the hook; we forgive to set ourselves free from the chains of bitterness and resentment.

Forgiveness doesn’t mean we ignore the hurt or pretend it never happened. It means we release the offender from the debt they owe us and entrust justice to God’s hands.

Practically, forgiveness may involve seeking support from trusted friends or counselors, setting healthy boundaries, or even reporting illegal behaviour. It’s a complex process that requires courage, humility, and faith.

Above all, forgiveness is a reflection of God’s love and mercy toward us. Just as Jesus forgave those who crucified Him, we are called to forgive even the most unforgivable acts.

So, if you’re struggling to forgive someone who has wounded you deeply, know that you’re not alone. Take comfort in the truth that forgiveness is not only possible but also transformative. It’s a journey toward healing, reconciliation, and freedom—a journey well worth taking.
