To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgiveness!

"To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgiveness, through we have rebelled against Him;" Daniel 9:9

Have you been hurtful to someone else?

Have you been hurt?

What are you doing with that hurt?

Do you plan on getting revenge?

Do you ever just sit and think about how you are going to make that person pay?

You have to give an answer for these before you can have that intimate relationship with the Father.

With God through the Holy Spirit we will know how to respond.

"Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." Ephesians 4:31-32

As God in Christ Jesus forgave you, so we are to forgive those who have hurt us.

It is when we don't forgive that our relationship with Him is in trouble.

Our relationship with Him will not survive no matter whom it may be with.

We will be in trouble in our relationships with our family, friends, co-workers, and with God because we have not humbled ourselves and forgiven that person who has hurt us, or we have hurt them.

No one said that it would be easy to forgive.

We are to forgive just as Christ forgave.

Jesus as for forgiveness for all those who persecuted Him, even hanging there upon that cross.

When we forgive someone we are to forget and go on, not to bring that problem up again later.

Peter asked Jesus, "How many times shall I forgive?"

Jesus answer was seventy times seven.

Jesus was not referring to a mathematical equation as most think, but in a spiritual realm.

Jesus was talking about unlimited forgiveness!

When you forgive you are forgiven by your Father in heaven.

When you don't forgive then you will not be forgiven by your Father in heaven.

The best thing to do is go to who even has offened you and ask forgiveness.

If you have offended or hurt someone go to them and ask forgiveness.

Let the Holy spirit lead and guide you into all truth and righteousness.

Let your Father be glorified by your actions

If Jesus can ask for forgiveness hanging on the cross for those who put Him there how much more should we be willing to forgive?

"Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye." Colossians 3:13
