And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. ~Luke 9:23

A Lesson in Christian Forgiveness: Victims' Families of Charleston Massacre Speak

Posted: 2015-06-22

(reprinted with permission from Gilbert Watch) 6-20-15

Matthew 18:21-22.  Then Peter came up and said to him, "Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him?  As many as seven times?"  Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven."

It was an incredible scene at Dylann Roof's bond hearing.  These families exemplify what Christ taught them.  They put their faith, love, and trust in Jesus Christ.  They belong to Him and Him alone.  They refuse to allow Satan's hate enter their hearts.  

Acts 7:59-60.  And as they were stoning Stephen, he called out, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” And falling to his knees he cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

Romans 12:21.  Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

1 Corinthians 13:13.  So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Romans 12:19.  Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath; for it is written: “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay,saith the Lord.”

Colossians 3:12-13.  Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
