Constitutional Scripture: Luke 6:36-37 Therefore be merciful just as your Father also is merciful. 37) Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Jesus our King made this statement. One thing we as individuals must do, is to take an evaluation of our lives and actions on a daily basis. It will remind us that we as human beings fall short every day. If it wasn't for the sacrifice of our King, we would be held accountable. We as citizens of the Kingdom of God must learn to forgive, if we intend to be forgiven and move on with our lives.
Please note: To forgive is to give up the wish to punish; it is not to have hard feelings at or toward anyone or thing. It means to pardon; or excuse: in other words, forget about it.
By the way, it take strength to forgive, that is why we must submit our will to the
Governor which is the Holy Spirit. Remember what Jesus said:
Constitutional Scripture: John 20:21-23 So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you." 22) And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them "Receive the Holy Spirit 23) if you forgive the sins of any; they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."
Focus point: Jesus knew that it took supernatural power to forgive others that sinned against you. That is why He left us the Governor (Holy Spirit). He gives us the strength and power to forgive others. If you are to become more like God the creator: (1) You must accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and especially His message. (2) You must accept the Kingdom of God, and then submit yourself to the Governor's guidance.
