The Power of Forgiveness

In a culture without forgiveness, how can one teach love? How can I speak of mercy when there is no words describing the character of God above?  How can this void be filled, who can stand in this gap so great?  Who has a love so deep for those that can only embrace hate?  Who but Jesus Christ, and what else apart from His love can heal these broken hearts?  What apart from the cross can communicate forgiveness to those who are lost?

The power of forgiveness, who can measure its reach? Who can reach into another’s heart and heal where there was a wounding breach? It cannot be framed in the mind, it cannot be cultivated or nurtured by hands, not even in part.  I know in truth that forgiveness flows from the heart.
