“Forgive, It’s a Command not an Option!”

13 04 2012

Shalom and greetings I bring to you my beloved friends around the globe in the name of our Mighty and Resurrected name of Our Lord Jesus Christ our Savior, Redeemer and Deliverer. My prayer for you my friends is that we should grow in love and love one another as Jesus Christ our Lord has taught us to do. Read the rest of the article and stay blessed at all times.Dearly beloved friends, have you ever heard of people coming up to you and saying that you should forgive the person that have hurt you in many ways? I bet that we all have heard this and it is really difficult indeed to just forgive them after all the things that has been done unto us, right? Is it really an easy task to just forgive someone just like that? To me, I really do not think so. But as believers and children of God we are taught to forgive one another and do not bear grudge and revenge too! Am I right? Many people say that they are true believers in Christ Jesus. But how many of us are following the footsteps of our Lord Jesus Christ?

Dearly beloved friends, “Forgiveness is a command and not at all an option for us to choose to forgive!” We are taught to sincerely, honestly and genuinely forgive those who have really hurt us till the maximum. Once we forgive those who have hurt us, we are not to remember back what they had done to us! When we still have this feeling within us then we have really not forgiven those who have hurt us or else we would not have that feeling of hurt still within us? Meaning we have chosen to option to forgive those who have hurt us. Yes, it is very difficult indeed.

Dearly beloved friends, when God forgives us of all our wrong doings that would have hurt God in many ways, the written word of God says that, “I have forgiven you and I will remember your sins no more!” We all have hurt God in many different ways and only God knows it. Sin is a sin in God’s eyes whether it is a big sin or a small sin. So where do we stand now as believers in Christ Jesus as we claim ourselves to be?

Dearly beloved friends, the biggest hurdle in one Christian’s life is FORGIVENESS! If we can forgive as the Lord Jesus has taught us to forgive one another then we are really true believers in Christ Jesus. Our Lord Jesus taught us the Lord’s prayer that we should forgive one another so that our sins also will be forgiven. That clearly states that if we have not forgiven those who have hurt us in words, action and thoughts then our sins too are neither forgiven by God. We have to bear this clearly in mind.

Friends, today if there is still hurt within you caused by those you love, it is high time that you start to forgive and let go of it. By doing this, we bring healing to ourselves. By not forgiving others we stop God’s blessing from coming into our life. We are to be a living example as children of God. Yes, we cannot do it on our own strength, but with the grace from God we will be able to do it. Think about it my friends. We only have today to live, so live wisely. Love one another and hate none. Have a truly Christ centered day and be a blessing to others around you today.

God Bless
