|"If you forgive any one anything, I too forgive that one; and what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven|
|anything, has been for your sakes in the presence [and with the approval] of Christ, the Messiah, to |
keep satan from getting the advantage over us; for we are not ignorant of his wiles and intentions."
[2 Cor 2:10-11 Ampl]
|"For Thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon|
|Thee." [Ps 86:5 NAS]|
|"And you, who were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh - your sensuality,|
|your sinful carnal nature - [God] brought to life together with [Christ], having [freely] forgiven us all |
our transgressions, having cancelled and blotted out and wiped away the handwriting of the note [or
bond] with its legal decrees and demands, which was in force and stood against us - hostile to us.
This [note with its regulations, decrees and demands] He set aside and cleared completely out of our
way by nailing it to [His] cross. [God] disarmed the principalities and powers ranged against us and
made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the
cross]. [Col 2:13-15 Ampl]
|"Freely ye have received; freely give. [Mt 10:8 KJV]|
|"It is more blessed to give than to receive." [Acts 20:35 MKJV]|
|"If you forgive people their trespasses - that is, their reckless and wilful sins, leaving them, letting|
|them go and giving up resentment - your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not |
forgive others their trespasses - their reckless and wilful sins, leaving them, letting them go and
giving up resentment - neither will your Father forgive you your trespasses." [Mt 6:14-15 Ampl]
|Thank God today for sending His Son. Thank Jesus for coming and
taking your place. Thank Holy Spirit for filling you with the
knowledge and understanding of what Jesus did for you. Confess your
sins before Him today, and repent and turn away, that you may receive
freedom and liberty and joy inexpressible. Then freely give what you
have received. Forgive someone today that needs your forgiveness.
And share with someone else how Jesus set you free and how He can
do the same for them!
