"Freedom that comes from forgiveness"

“When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free.”-Catherine Ponder

Forgive us of our trespasses as we forgive those who have trespassed against us (Matthew 6:12 NIV), why do we ask for forgiveness when we aren't welling to grant it ourselves? Simple! It's easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to grant it. By asking all we have to do is allow a few words to come out of our mouths but giving it requires much more. We have to be WILLING to release whatever anger or deeply rooted hatred we've built up in order to give forgiveness.

Pardoning someone by forgiving them sets your emotions free and instantly provides a sense of newness (being transformed-2 Corinthians 3:18-NIV). It's like receiving a get out of jail card and being released at that same moment. Or taking off your old worn coat and putting on a brand new shiny one (you've taken off your old self and put on your new self-Colossians 3:9 NIV).

If you want to have freedom that comes from forgiveness try remembering this verse:Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you of your transgressions (Mark 11:25 NIV).


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
