If Christ forgives us for sins, we are told to forgive others so we can be forgiven. Shouldn’t we forgive others when they do wrong against us? So let’s forgive each other while we still have the chance because we are never promised tomorrow! You have the power to choose to forgive. Forgiveness gives you the power to be free. Plus you will feel a weight lifted off when you forgive someone else. One other thing as I close, not only do we need to forgive others, but we must forgive ourselves too. Too often we forget to forgive ourselves. Christ on the Cross even said, “Father Forgive Them For They Know Not What They Do.” So we should have the same mind set. Forgive others including ourselves. Remember, Sin blinds us.
A quote from Martin Luther King Jr. “Forgiveness is God’s Command.” I couldn’t have summed it up no easier than that.
Check out this video, You, Sin & Christ, A Simple Illustration. It can show us how the blood of Christ can cleanse us clean.
If you have done wrong against a fellow person, make it right today! If someone has wronged you, forgive them!
