Mark 11:25, “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
You must always remember that you are a sinner saved by grace. It is the will of God for you to remember that you sinned and have been forgiven. For it is that remembrance that creates a loving, helpful and compassionate heart in you towards others. Forgiveness is not based on the magnitude of the sin but on the magnitude of the Father’s love. Jesus never bothered how grievous your sins were when He said, “Father forgive them”.
In mercy, we are not excluded. It is always unreasonable to forgive your enemy until you realise that you were once an enemy of God until He forgave you. It is this remembrance that creates love, compassion and helpfulness in your heart. Until that forgiveness is voiced and received, we should not pray because if we are not forgiving, the power of faith is short-circuited. Thus, it was Jesus’ great design to engage all His followers to love and forgive. As you read this, begin to remember, who you need to forgive today. Anywhere you are, as you have forgiven those who sin against you, get ready for your forgiveness to be voiced and received in the cleansing power of the blood of Jesus Christ by faith.
PRAYER: Forgive me, Oh Lord; I will be forgiven, in Jesus’ name.
