What inspired Forgiveness: The Missing Link to Wholeness ?
As I began to work out the spiritual application of forgiveness among strained relationships in my life, the overwhelming understanding became evident, that forgiving the way Jesus forgives is the way to true freedom for both the offended and the offender, not merely confessing a belief in a man.
I became increasingly burdened about just how much we do not understand the very foundation of our walk as believers in Jesus Christ. A lack of desire to see others free and, more disturbing, an intense desire to want others to pay for their offences seemed to be the norm among some professing Christians (including preachers). That burden became too strong for me to ignore, so I set out to learn–and then write this book–in attempt to shatter the untruths that the church holds so dear about the most life changing force there is on the planet.
Forgiveness is the very essence of love. If we chose not to forgive those who offend us, we are telling Jesus,
“What you endured at the cross was in vain. God needs to do something else because your Love and Sacrifice was not enough!”
