FOCAL TEXT: Ephesians 4 vs 32►► “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”~| KJV |______________________________________
GLORIOUS greetings, Cherished one. As long as you remain human and live on this earth, people will offend you and you must be ready to forgive them. Offences may come from relatives, loved ones and friends, however, Christ taught us to forgive genuinely from our heart. *Do you know God forgives us from His heart and not just His mouth and remembers them no more?* Jesus taught us to forgive genuinely because He knew the ultimate essence of this virtue.
He was sent to save the world from their sins, therefore had to forgive them not holding their sins against them (2 Corinthians 5:18; John 1:29; 1 John 2:1,2). Apostle Paul enjoins that ” In Him, we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins…” (Ephesians 1:7). The unwillingness to genuinely forgive others is a sign that you haven’t understood the revelation behind the forgiveness you received from Jesus Christ. Jesus forgave all your sins in order to empower you to also forgive others who will offend you.
Therefore, with the love of God in you, learn to forgive those who wrongly step on your toes. You may be bitter or hurt because of a painful experience from a loved one or relative. But, as a New Creation, the love of God that makes you act like Him is shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5). Be moved by compassion and forgive others for Christ’s sake, not for their sake per se. Today, the same way Christ forgave you, go and do the same. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds towards you always.
Dear Father, I thank You for not counting my sins against me. Thank You for forgiving me all my sins. I totally humble myself to forgive others of all the trespasses willingly or unwillingly done against me. Thank You for the grace given me to do this in Jesus Blessed Name. Amen !
Pray for anyone who has offended you and genuinely forgive that person from your heart for Christ’s sake.
You are not safe until you are saved. Believe in Jesus Christ Now, if you haven’t.
