Forgive so you can be forgiven

The theme of forgiveness is one of the deepest themes of the Bible. It must be recognized that for many it is extremely difficult to forgive or ask for forgiveness. For many, asking for forgiveness is an act of humiliation and they do not want to humble themselves before others, however, the Bible says: “God looks at the humble up close and the proud up at a distance.”

On the other hand, the issue of forgiving others is difficult for many, but, in the prayer that Jesus taught us, He says: “Forgive our sins as we forgive those who trespass against us”. This is Christianity: “Forgive.”

Remember something, we have received the greatest forgiveness, that being us sinful candidates for hell, Christ forgave us and offered Himself for us and redeemed us from sin. Would you have done the same for a friend? Would you forgive a friend of some sin he committed against you? So the point is that we should look like Christ, and if we want to be like Christ, then we should learn to forgive those who offend us, because in this way teach us the Holy Scriptures.

Jesus taught about forgiveness and we see this in the Bible when He says:

24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Mark 11:24-26

Jesus tells us that when we are praying, if we have anything against someone we must forgive him, so that in the same way our Father who is in heaven will forgive us.

Every day we must learn more and more about forgiveness, although this is very difficult for man, because the nature of man does not allow him to humble himself before others or accept his error. But, we as Christians must be totally different. Let us forgive!
