Fuller: daily forgiveness

Sunday, July 12, 2015
    [Jesus:] “Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”
    —Matthew 6:11-12 (NIV)
    Consider what two petitions Christ couples together in His prayer: when my body, which every day is hungry, can live without God’s giving it daily bread, then and no sooner shall I believe that my soul, which daily sinneth, can spiritually live without God’s forgiving it its trespasses.
    ... Thomas Fuller (1608-1661), The Cause and Cure of a Wounded Conscience [1655], “Dialogue VI” (see the book)
    See also Matt. 6:11-12; Deut. 8:3; Neh. 9:20; Ps. 78:23-25; Matt. 26:27-28; John 6:27,35,48-58; Acts 2:38; 1 Cor. 10:3-4;
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your daily forgiveness is my food.
