AND NOW...THE FIRST CHAPTER:


Forgiveness

Sincerely asking God to let those who have
hurt us off the hook



Total forgiveness is a choice. It is not a feeling—at least at first—but is rather an act of the will. It is the choice to tear up the record of wrongs we have been keeping. When we develop a lifestyle of total forgiveness, we learn to erase the wrong rather than file it away in our mental computer.

Total forgiveness must take place in the heart. Confidence toward God is ultimately what total forgiveness is all about; He is the One I want to please at the end of the day. He cares and knows whether I have truly and totally forgiven, and when I know I have His love and approval, I am one very happy and contented servant of Christ.4


Unforgiveness

Living with bitterness, anger, and self-pity because of what another did to hurt us



Bitterness and unforgiveness demonstrate an inward condition. It is an excessive desire for vengeance that comes from deep resentment. It heads the list of things that grieve the Spirit of God. It is one of the most frequent causes of people missing the grace of God.

This inward condition of unforgiveness will manifest itself in many ways—losing your temper, high blood pressure, irritability, sleeplessness, obsession with getting even, depression, isolation, a constant negative perspective, and generally feeling unwell.

We must, therefore, begin to get rid of a bitter and unforgiving spirit; otherwise, the attempt to forgive will fail.5





Forgiveness

Ask Yourself

Do I have resentment or bitterness in my heart because of something someone did to me or said about me? Do I lack inner peace?



Relinquishing bitterness is an open invitation for the Holy Spirit to give you His peace, His joy, and the knowledge of His will.



Remember

But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

—Matthew 6:15, niv


Unforgiveness

Ask Yourself

Are you praying for God’s blessings to rain on the lives of your offenders? Why not?



The desire to punish another is the opposite of perfect love and total forgiveness.



Remember

Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another.

—Colossians 3:13, niv
