Testimony: Powerful testimony on Forgiveness

Testimony: Powerful testimony on Forgiveness

Forgiveness is so important.  The key to loving is forgiveness.  When Jesus Christ poured out his life on the cross for us He said:

Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots

God provided forgiveness for us while we were enemies to Him.  This needs to sink into our hearts.  Every part of our beings cried out hatred for God.

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

Part of the teaching on the sermon on the mount included a profound statement on forgiveness:

Matthew 6:15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Jesus told a parable of man who was forgiven such a great debt and yet would not forgive another.  Please take these scriptures to heart.

Matthew 18:34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.

Matthew 18:35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

Notice in the above verses that Jesus is telling us that we will have to pay what we would not forgive!  Love forgives.

Eph 5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

Eph 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
