Setting Yourself Free – Forgiving | Blessed Magazine

forgive-clubThen came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?  Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven – Matthew 18:21-22

How many times have we been hurt, betrayed or sabotaged in our lives?  Some of us can count on one hand, while others need a complete notebook, but no matter how many times you have been in these situations, it is imperative to your salvation to forgive and move on

Forgiving someone for wronging us may seem difficult at first because the pain of the ordeal is so great, but if we want to truly please God and ensure that we make it to heaven, we must forgive quickly and without regret or vindication

Jesus answered Peter that no matter how many times our brother (and this means anyone in our life) who wrongs us, we must continue forgiving them

Why do we need to forgive?  Is it just to ensure that we are doing our godly duty?  Is it to ensure that we make it to heaven?  It’s all that and this; forgiving others when they hurt us ensures that they hold no power over us.  When we allow someone to hold power over our lives, we are not free to do what we need to do for ourselves and definitely not for God.  Forgiving releases us from the bonds of the enemy.  As Believers in the faith, we should not allow anything to stand between us and the joy and peace that Jesus so freely gives to His people

Next time someone does something to hurt us, we should quickly forgive and move on with our lives.  No one is worth our happiness and definitely not worth us going to eternal damnation
