Many of us like to think that there are reasons to never forgive someone. We like to justify reasons for never forgiving due to the level of pain that was caused to us....but the truth is that there aren't
reasons to hold grudges and not forgive.
As Christians, we have received forgiveness. Our sins against God gave us the right to be condemned to the death penalty. That's
the condition we are in until we believe in Jesus and receive forgiveness of our sins, which then gives us the right to be called children of God.
Some of us who have been forgiven used to be drug addicts, prostitutes, murderers, etc. In spite of all those things God forgave us all. But here's
the thing...I think it's
because we think we haven't
done such "bad" things like that we are justified to hold grudges against another.
So of us have never killed. Some of us have never slept around. Some of us have never done drugs except for the ones prescribed by the doctors. So the level of forgiveness received from God, we might think, isn't
that big of a deal? We reflect those words by how we do treat those who have sinned against us.
Forgiveness sets us free. Jesus wants us to be free. We must forgive. If we don't
forgive, God will not forgive us. And if God doesn't
forgive us, that's
end game. If we have trouble forgiving, there's
nothing wrong with asking God to help us forgive. We need His heart of love to be able to forgive. Let's
be free from the chains of unforgivenes.
God bless you
