The servant therefore fell down and worshipped him, saying, Lord have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And the lord of that servant, being moved with compassion, released him, and forgave him the debt. Matthew 18.26, 27.

The lord in the parable, but even more so our God in heaven, is moved with compassion not because the servant is willing to pay back, but because of the latter’s repentance and humility and pleading for mercy. He knows very well that the servant is not able to repay, and so he forgives him the debt. “Released . . . forgave”— These verbs describe actions which happen in this age. If these actions can happen in the age to come, the Lord’s righteousness will be compromised. Today God not only releases but also forgives all our debt. The grace of God always surpasses human expectation.
