We all as christian men and women have our own scenario about forgiveness. Even people who does not walk the faith walk has their personal meaning of forgiveness. The truth is do we all know what forgiveness truly mean, and what lengths to we go through to forgive someone. Through many conversations with family members, associates, christian fellowship, and workplace communication. Do we all have just a glimpse of what forgiveness really mean, or we looking and demonstrating a forgiving heart just like Jesus Christ.
Forgiveness is not an emotion, forgiveness is an act of the will, and the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart. The virtue of forgiveness requires each of us to have emotional stability. I personally believe emotional stability can help you gain the ability to be emotionally stable in any given situation. It's so easy to pass judgment on others or condemn them. Sometimes it even make you feel good. Anytime we become involved in judging or condeming others, we face the danger of having our own standards being used against us. Forgiveness, however, is always a virtue. We have to pray and ask God to keep us from the temptation of making rash judgements or codemning others. Just think in this fashion and say: Lord, I have enough of my own sin to worry about, rather worry about the sin of someone else.
Let's look at this from another point of view, do you realize that Jesus opened the prison doors. The word of God says: he came to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty. If you hold a gruge or have a heart not to forgive, you're keeping yourself in bondage. Don't stay trapped in your past, because your past can only be relived if you open the door. I urge you ask the Lord to take your hand and lead you out of the prison of unforgiveness. The greatest thing you can have in your life after learning how to forgive is Godly passion. Ask God to purify you, everything from your past and what you may face in the future, and let it surface so you can see who you really are. I would like for you to meditate on this prayer once you have asked God to help you forgive, and then forgive yourself. Make it personal when you're saying this prayer, where you see the word us or our say: ME
Neither death, nor life, nor angles, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to seperate us from the love of God. Which is Jesus Christ our lord.
Have a bless night.
