Praying For God's Pardon
Nurse Magdeline Makola
Forgiveness Is An Order, Not An Option
MATTHEW Chapter 6 verses 14-15 If you forgive others when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive your sins. But if you do not forgive others, your heavenly Father will not forgive your sins either. That's because....
A. THE CROSS SHOWS US WHAT OUR SINS DID TO JESUS & WHAT JESUS DID FOR US
If I can't forgive other people, I have not realised my sins put Jesus on the Cross.
On the Cross Jesus prayed for his executioners: "Father, forgive them because they don't know what they're doing." LUKE 23:33-35
B. THE CROSS SHOWS US OUR NEED FOR GOD'S FORGIVENESS & OUR NEED TO FORGIVE OTHERS
We need to forgive others as Jesus forgave those executing him and God has forgiven our sins.
COLOSSIANS 3:13 Make allowances for each other and forgive one another if you have a grievance against anyone. Forgive as the LORD has forgiven you.
