forgiveness-quotesShabbat shalom and greetings I bring to you my beloved friends around the globe in the matchless name of our Lord Jesus Christ our perfect Savior,Redeemer and Deliverer. My prayer for you that, in all things and situations that you are in today believe that God is in total control of your life. Do take time to read the rest of the article. Stay blessed at all times. God Bless.

Dearly beloved friends, greetings and peace to you again in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Looking at the above topic “Forgiveness” is one hard and difficult thing that we all have to do if we confess and say that we are children of God. Being a believer the most important thing that we need to have within us is indeed “forgiveness.” It is not an easy thing to do. We cannot do it in our own strength but with God’s strength we are able to forgive those who have hurt us by their actions,words and thoughts.

Dearly beloved friends, each one of us have been hurt in many ways and we still do carry this hurt within us and some still carry it to the grave. What do we really get out of it? You may say that it is an easy thing for me to say and write about forgiveness. I am one of those who have been hurt in many ways by those who were close to me. I have been called by abusive names and even been back stabbed by those whom I trust. It is not easy when you are single. So many kinds of names will be thrown to you. But can we stop people from throwing such accusations?

Dear friends,what is important to me is how God sees me. Both my children would ask me why am I still associating with those who have hurt me and accused me with so many things. My answer. “just forgive them.” As how God forgave our sins we are likewise to do the same. The more we carry the hurt and revenge within us the more we will be losing the blessings that God has in store for us.

As Christians, are we not to forgive those who have hurt us? What about the Lord’s prayer where it is written, “Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us.” Unless we forgive those who have hurt us then only our sins will be forgiven. It is not easy being a Christian because we need to have this fruit of forgiveness within us. We need to forgive and forget. God forgives us and says that he will blot out our transgression and remember our sins no more. Aren’t we as believers ought to do the same?

Beloved friends, today God wants to heal you of your hurt that has been with you for so long. God wants to give you the peace that the world can never give you. God wants you to surrender all your hurt that is within you to Him. God says that he will handle all these hurts for you. Why do you want to lose the blessings that God has in store for you?

Beloved friends, if our Lord Jesus Christ was not crucified on the cross at Calvary 2000 years ago, we still will not have the forgiveness of sins and the redemption of life. Jesus Christ who was with no sins took the sins of the world upon himself for all mankind. Jesus Christ was crucified in such a horrific manner just to give us the forgiveness of sins. Think about it my beloved ones. Do not be trapped as a prisoner for not forgiving those who have hurt you in many ways. God sees it all.When you forgive you will be free with nothing to hold you back. There is freedom in forgiveness.

Beloved friends, the choice is still in your hands. God has given us all a free choice. Give a thought about it. Why lose your blessings and peace because of others. Have a blessed day and stay blessed at all times.

God Bless
