1. All Your Major Sins Have Been Forgiven by God (YHWH)

Youre Forgiven by Awayion Beauty

For starters, if you are a saint, this message is old news. But reminders are always good.

Our Heavenly Father sent His only Son (Messiah Yeshua AKA Christ Jesus of Nazareth) as a living sacrifice. For the sins we commit. That said, there isn’t a valid excuse for being unforgiving — regardless of the offense.

Have you heard that we are to be forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do you? Tough pill to swallow — when the offense is something gruesome. But the truth hurts sometimes. 

Keep in mind that you must forgive. Christ’s sacrifice for our sins means we can avert our trip to Hell. Harsh? I know. Thank our Heavenly Father for His Son’s sacrifice.

2. You Do Not Want to Be Judged

Not Judged by Awayion Beauty

When you have a major fail, you do not want judgement. You want mercy for your wrongs — and correction in love. You do not want condemnation.

Now, since you do not want judgement when you fail — why not extend the same treatment to someone who hurt you?

Have you heard do not judge and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned? If not, think about this verse.

3. You Want Forgiveness From Others

Forgive

You want to receive forgiveness from others — when you offend them.

Now, since you want forgiveness from others for your flaws, why not remember that they have flaws as well? And that they may want forgiveness too?

Have you heard this: “Lord, if my brother keeps on sinning against me, how many times do I have to forgive him? Seven times?” “No, not seven times,” answered Jesus, “but seventy times seven.”? 

Sow forgiveness, so you can reap it back.

4. You Do Not Want to Be Punished for Your Failures

Forgive by Awayion Beauty

You lack perfection. We all do. It is so easy to treat someone who hurt you like they are worthless. And when you believe someone is worthless, you punish them for their failures.

Meanwhile, you hold yourself in high regard and you want for your failures to go unpunished. You do not want negativity when you fail. Guess what? Neither does anybody else.

Have you heard that He (YHWH) does not punish us as we deserve… or repay us according to our sins and wrongs?

Sobering thought, eh?

5. You Want Your Prayers to Be Answered

Choosing not to forgive others is dangerous. Your prayers to our Heavenly Father will go unanswered, when you do not forgive.

Have you heard when you stand and pray, forgive offenses you may have against anyone. So your Father in heaven will forgive the wrongs you have done? Interesting, huh?

Super Awesome Side Notes: Forgiving is a command from our Creator. If the offense is dangerous, forgiveness does not mean you continue a relationship with the offender. Forgiveness does not let the offender off the hook. They must seek forgiveness. They will face judgement and punishment from our Heavenly Father. Guaranteed.
