From Your Heart, Forgive

It is true that it can be difficult to forgive someone who has wronged you, but forgiveness is the Christian way!

Jesus said, “Pray then like this… ‘forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.’” (Matthew 6:12, ESV)

In my short time in pastoral ministry I have noticed that Christians sometimes struggle to forgive. There are times when the unforgiving disposition is indeed due to a hardness of heart. But often I find that the Christian’s unwillingness to forgive is due, in part, to a lack of understanding concerning what forgiveness is, and what it is not, according to the scriptures.

May I encourage all of you, and especially those struggling with the issue of forgiveness now, to prayerfully, thoroughly, and thoughtfully read the attached article. It’s a bit longer than a Twitter post, but it presents the Bible’s teaching on this issue with the depth and breadth necessary to help move the Christian to a God honoring place when it comes to forgiving others from the heart.
