If I put $50k in a checking account in your name and gave you the checkbook, you could give anyone money until it ran out. It would not be hard to do – just decide to give someone some money, write the check, and hand it to them. Or mail it.
It is just as easy to forgive someone. No matter what they did to you or failed to do for you. No Matter!
It isn’t easy to forgive because it doesn’t hurt, or doesn’t feel like injustice, or any of our other excuses for pretending its hard. It is easy because all you have to do yourself is make the decision. The rest of the process is drawn on the Blood of Jesus that was tortured out of His body the day He was sacrificed.
All bitterness, anger and wrath, insult and slander must be removed from you, along with all wickedness. And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.
(Ephesians 4:31-32 /Holman Christian Standard Bible® © 2005 by Holman Bible Publishers.)
Forgive one another just as God forgave you – in Christ. There is no other source of the power to forgive but the cross of Jesus.
Release the power! Be insanely generous!
