How Can You Recieve Forgiveness? 


Forgiveness…If I want to be forgiven, what is the first thing I need to do? The first thing you need to do is to have a spirit of forgiveness with others!

It is fascinating what it says in Matthew 6:14-15 “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive our sins”. 

To be forgiven by God is the ultimate gift that God has given us by offering His life for us in John 3:16. We need to confess our sin to God and ask to be forgiven. Be sure to keep a short account of our offense, by asking to be forgiven and turn from our wrongdoing. 

Forgiveness is more important that you may think!

There are other types of forgiveness, such as between two people. When you think that you have done wrong to anyone, you need to take care of business and ask to be forgiven. You may use the words, “I was wrong, (with what I said or did) I am sorry, please forgive me. How can I make things right between us?”

When someone refuses to forgive someone else, it is like they are drinking poison thinking that it will kill the other person. Let go of all resentments and forgive others so that you may also be forgiven. You want to be forgiven, don’t you? It is important to learn how to be forgiven by God and others. ~ Bill Greguska
