Walking in Forgivness

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Mark 11:25. Whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven will also forgive you your sins.

Let’s re-read this verse. It says if we have “anything” against “anyone” we must forgive. We are told so many times God loves all and Jesus died for all. We are to love all. This is not an emotional,warm fuzzy love but a love of choice of wanting God’s best for all. No one is to be excluded. It is so easy to want someone who has hurt us together the same treatment back. That isn’t love. God doesn’t hold back love from us when we hurt Him through our sins and disobedience. He continues to reach out to us in love bringing His best for us into our lives. Re-read the last art of the verse; “forgive so that your Father will also forgive you your sins.” Our forgiveness is given in the same way, timing and amount we forgive others. If this doesn’t motivate us to forgive, give resentments, bitterness and anger nothing will. Let us prepare for a new year walking continually in the love of God through total forgiveness of all.
