“Forgiveness, It Is The Best Revenge!”

15 07 2011

Greetings I bring to you my dear friends in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ Our Redeemer. Dear friends, as we take a look at today’s topic entitled, “Forgiveness, It Is The Best Revenge!” honestly how many of us as believers out there are able to have this thing that we call “Forgiveness” within us? Is it compulsory for us to have this thing that we call “Forgiveness” within us, if we are called as children of God?  Please do read on the rest of the article to know why “Forgiveness, Is The Best Revenge.”

Dear friends, there are many times we are hurt by other people’s behavior and actions. This is when hatred comes in our mind, that may lead to angry thoughts, which may eventually result in improper actions. The Holy Bible says a lot about the good qualities that should be possessed by us and also practiced in our everyday lives. It is well said that forgiveness is the best revenge. Remember that forgiveness is not at all as easy as you think, but it surely is the best solution to live a peaceful and a problem-free life. If you forgive others and forget about their bad behavior or actions, we can move ahead in life and achieve our goals effectively. Following are some good bible verses about forgiveness that we as believers should take into consideration.

Dearly beloved friends, before going into the bible verses, we as believers should ever be ready to forgive others. You may ask me friends, if it is compulsory for every believer to forgive those who have hurt us by their action, words and deeds. It is indeed compulsory, because God says so. One good example we see is from Our Lord Jesus Christ. If we can sit and think back of all the things that took place 2000 years ago in Calvary we see that Our Lord Jesus Christ himself forgive those who have insulted and tortured him. We also see it in the Lord’s Prayer, where we are to forgive those who have sin against us as we forgive those who have sinned against us.When we start to forgive others, we ourselves bring forgiveness and peace upon ourselves. As long there is no forgiveness in our hearts there will not be peace reigning within us.

Dear friends, why Forgiveness is the best revenge is because according to the word of God “if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. – Matthew 6:14-15.” So if we want God to forgive our sins then we have to forgive others too.Therefore, “if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift. – Matthew 5:23-24.” Friends, today many of us who are believers, usually partake in the Holy Eucharist every Sunday. How many of us genuinely have forgiven those who have sinned against us? We see many believers still having revenge and ill feelings against one another. Does this type of attitude ever bring out the righteousness of God within us?

Dearly beloved friends, we are not to forget that we are witnesses of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We are in fact to bring out the aroma of Jesus Christ to those around us. If Jesus himself can forgive those who have betrayed him, insulted and tortured him, who are we not to forgive others. Are we all the more greater than Christ our Lord Jesus? Friends, it is high time we realize and stop having the revenge within us so to keep our conscience clear before God. Friends, it is still in your hands if you want to forgive or still have the spirit of revenge within you. The choice is still yours. Have a Blessed weekend.

God Bless.
