Forgiveness in the Hands of God

Forgiveness in the Hands of God

True reconciliation occurs through confession and forgiveness and is possible only through Christ.


Most of us will never look into the eyes of someone who murdered our friends and family. But Hutu and Tutsi Rwandans are now reconciling years after one of the most devastating genocides in history. In this reconciliation we see the power of God's grace to bring repentance, transformation, and forgiveness. We also see the possibility of reconciliation in our own lives.
