Sometimes people do me wrong, and they don’t seem to care. They certainly don’t apologize to me or ask forgiveness. Yet Jesus makes it clear I have to forgive them anyway, if I want my sins to be forgiven!
Mark 11:25-26, says:
And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But IF YOU DO NOT forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.
When someone wrongs me and doesn’t apologize, this Scripture really helps me to forgive. I remind myself it’s my glory to take the high road and forgive.
May we continue subscribing to the teachings of Christ and submitting to His authority so that we acquire the power to forgive always because Forgiveness is not something you earn for years of service after you come to Christ. Forgiveness is by the grace of God.
God has He lifted your burdens before? He will do it again!God can give you a new song and a hope for tomorrow.The sweetest revenge that you will ever experience is to forgive and forget totally.
Forgiveness is a full pardon, a fresh start, a new chance, and a new beginning. Forgiveness is not burying the hatchet with the handle up just in case you need it again.Forgiveness is essential for emotional healing. It is not optional.When you forgive, joy will replace grief. Peace will replace anger. Love will replace hate. Contentment will replace frustration.Your mental, emotional, and physical health will surge with life when you forgive others.Forgiveness is not a prize to be run for. It is a blessing to be received.
