If someone took away your child, how would you respond? For Arad in Iran, facing the Goliath-sized challenge of forgiveness seemed too much to bear. Yet, God transformed His heart to do what we, on our own, cannot.
“I want to share a testimony with you about how God has helped me to forgive the murderers of my son. When my son was killed a few months ago, my heart was filled with hatred and I wanted to take revenge. However, when I heard about Jesus’ crucifixion on the cross and His prayer for the people who killed Him and persecuted Him -“God forgive them for they don’t know what they are doing” – I was very impressed. I asked Jesus to give me the strength to forgive the murderers of my son and He helped me.
“My life was so changed that I went to see one of my relatives who was involved in my son’s death. I hugged him and told him that I had forgiven him. Everyone who knew my circumstances asked me what had happened in my life. I started to talk about Jesus who changed my life and helped me to forgive others as He forgave us.”
