Forgiveness Makes You FREE
The most important thing to remember when it comes to forgiving is that forgiveness doesn't make the other person right, it makes you FREE. The best way to turn ANGER, BITTERNESS, HATRED, and RESENTMENT for someone into LOVE is to pray for that person. God softens your heart when you do and brings wholeness into your life.
Therefore, my brothers, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.
In [Christ] we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace.
Praise God if you've already visited the places in your heart and soul that needed repair, asking and giving forgiveness in all areas, including forgiving yourself. There is NO NEED to RELIVE the sins of our past OVER and OVER. Once forgiven, ALWAYS FORGIVEN-that is the power of God's LOVE for us.
