Forgiveness

To mend relationships

By Cheryll White 

“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.” … Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” ~ Matthew 6:14  

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” ~ Ephesians 4:32 

Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions. ~ Mark 11:25 

   We read again and again and again in the Bible, particularly in Jesus’ own words, that doing everything we can to forgive and salvage broken relationships is not only a good thing do to, but something God has called us to do. Forgiveness affects your fellowship with your Heavenly Father—it is not an option, it’s a requirement.  

   The very fact you are holding a grudge against someone is disobedience to God’s will for your life. As long as you hold that grudge, your fellowship with that person and with God is going to be negatively affected. When you forgive the person you are holding a grudge against, your Heavenly Father forgives you for holding that grudge. Your fellowship with people affects your fellowship with God. That’s how God designed it. 

My heavenly Father will also do the same to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart.” ~ Matthew 18:35
