The blessings of forgiveness

When we forgive, our hearts open up to God’s forgiveness (Matthew 6:15); it puts us in a receiving position when we pray (Mark 11:24, 25); it helps us become spiritually fruitful (John 15:10, 12, 5); and we will know that we have passed from spiritual death to being reconciled with our heavenly Father when we love each other (1 John 3:14)! When we keep God’s commandments and love one another, we prove that we love Jesus (John 14:21), and we abide in Christ’s love (John 15:10)! What a magnificent blessing forgiveness really is!!!

It is tough, yet possible; the reason it is God’s perfect gift to humanity. I didn’t say best gift. It is a perfect gift.
