How Many Times Do We Forgive?
Good morning beautiful people, good morning. Forgiveness is on my mind once again this morning. Forgiveness is only through God’s grace and our choice. If we allow unforgiveness to stay within us, it is poisonous to our soul. It is like cancer, it eats at us, eats at us, until our hearts are hardened and the enemy of our soul has won. It is imperative we live in continual forgiveness. It doesn’t matter what has been done to us, we forgive even the unforgivable and live free in Christ. Amen? Amen!
Father, thank you for forgiveness of our sins. Give us the grace to forgive others as you forgive us. Mark 11:25 tells us when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins. Forgiveness is not earned, deserved and it doesn’t make what’s wrong right. It does however free us to live out our lives according to your desires. By forgiving others, we set the captive free. That captive sometimes is us.
Father, cleanse our hearts today, so that we can look at the world through your eyes and continue our journey with the same forgiveness, love, compassion, joy, understanding that you have given to us.
Father, we choose to release today all offenses, hurts, bitterness, resentment and anything that is hidden deep within the recesses of our heart. We replace it with forgiveness and apply the healing balm of Gilead. Amen.
Have a blessed day God’s beautiful people. Forgive them all today and be free.
Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
