“We are not called to infinitely forgive on our own. This would be to ask the impossible. Rather we are called to make the difficult choice to forgive as an act of obedience to Jesus Christ, and then to become a channel through which the Holy Spirit brings the love of God into a deeply broken and alienated world.”
In his book, Brian Zahnd puts forgiveness as one channel through which God chooses to reach into the world with his extravagant love.
