Steps To A New Start-Part 5

March 24, 2014

 

Colossians 3:13 “bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.”

We do not need to think about forgiving others because God has forgiven us…it is not something we need to think and pray about. You and I need immediately forgive other people when we have been wronged.

God forgives us because Jesus died for all sin. God sees us from an eternal position of being in Christ, and if are going to forget what lies behind and all the things we feel guilty about, we need to say, “Lord Jesus, I agree with you and I confess to you that these attitudes I have are sinful and I turn from them by the power of your Holy Spirit, knowing that all of these were nailed to the cross with Jesus Christ under His shed blood.” Amen! We do not need to think about forgiving others because God has forgiven us…it is not something we need to think and pray about. You and I need immediately forgive other people when we have been wronged.  God forgives and forgets and we must forgive others.
