Forgiveness – a Christian Essential

Matt 6:14-15 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

It is an essential part of your Christianity – forgiveness.
It’s not just about forgiveness for you but, more importantly, your forgiveness for others.
God forgiving you hinges on your forgiveness of others.
I know there are people doing horrible things and should not be worthy of forgiveness.
I wonder if God thinks the same thing about the “good” people, since “there is none who does good, no, not one.” Rom 3:12
Sin is sin to God.
God does not judge by the severity of sin, He judges by the righteousness of Jesus, who died so you can be forgiven.
So now to have that forgiveness you must die – to your grudge, to your hate, to your hurt, to your stubbornness, to your pride – and forgive others.
