Forgiveness – Part 6


Forgiveness or lack of forgiveness is having major impact in every person’s life.  We can take that a step further and say it is having a major impact on those who have passed on to eternity as well.  In this series we are going to look at God’s position on forgiveness concerning all of humanity and the evil that we have and do commit.  In addition, I want to look at the importance of receiving and giving forgiveness.   

“I thought I could have leaped from earth to heaven at one spring when I first saw my sins drowned in the Redeemer’s blood.” – Charles Spurgeon

Patti Davis, the daughter of Ronald Reagan said that her dad made a lasting impression on her the day after the assassination attempt of 1982. She says, “The following day my father (Ronald Reagan) said he knew his physical healing was directly dependent on his ability to forgive John Hinckley. By showing me that forgiveness is the key to everything, including physical health and healing, he gave me an example of Christ-like thinking.”

– The Quote Letter, December 1996

The Scriptures in Matt 24:12 share this truth with us, “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” NKJV.  Forgiveness is key to the love of God burning hot in our lives.  Walking in forgiveness is key to walking in victory.  We invite you to be with us.   


Forgiveness – Part 6 – We are called to forgive the way that we have been forgiven.  We are currently in the parable of the unforgiving servant in Matthew 18.  Jesus is clear that He expects us as His servants to show forgiveness toward others in the same way that God has shown forgiveness to us.  The forgiveness that we give is miniscule in comparison to what we have been forgiven.  The debts against us are not to be compared with the debt that we owed God.  When we hold unforgiveness against our fellow servants we are declaring that our hurt is of more value than the person Christ died for, this causes harm to us and to the Kingdom of Heaven.
