Reconciliation Not Revenge! January 13, 2017

Nelson Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist, who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He is believed by many to be one of the greatest leaders in recent history. After being wrongly imprisoned for twenty-seven years by the racist government of South Africa of that day, Mandella was released and later became President of His country. However, Mandella did not call for revenge, but forgiveness and reconciliation. In that way, he pictures the Lord Jesus Christ. Falsely accused and crucified, He was heard to say as He was dying for the sins of the world, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Jesus died, “the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God. “Although Mandella was a great man, Jesus was the God-man, the greatest Who ever lived. And today He offers forgiveness and reconciliation to all.
