Forgiveness - Not a choice but an obligation !

What is unforgiveness

Unforgiveness can be defined as a Grudge Against Someone Who Has Offended You.

Romans 5:8: “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners” (NLT).
What gives us the authority to hold grudges and harbor unforgiveness in our lives ? We do not have that authority as Christians. If Christ, whom we are imitators of loved us as sinners, we too are obligated to love those that has wronged and sinned against us. Matthew in chapter 5 and verse 44 commissions us to love our enemies! and  Pray for those who persecute us. This simply tells us that no matter how much we are hurt by those around us we should forgive , love and prayer for them regardless.
In Colossians 3:12-13  (ESV) we are charged to be kind and compassionate and again forgiving towards our fellow men.
Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.”

Are we sitting around hoping that our situation gets better and not asking God to intervene?

Gods word says that " you do not have because you do not ask... (James 4:3)".

What does this mean... to ask is to petition or inquire about something anything that is close to our heart, making a demand of God on what is already ours. In asking we are also required to trust God as he is the one who supplies our needs.

As a child growing up and even as a teenager I thought that I can only ask God for stuff that pertains to his will for me. So when I pray, I would ask God for health, strength and to take me safely through the day - stuff that is mentioned explicitly in his word. Don't get me wrong this is also what we can ask for; but I am also here to say that God wants to grant the desires of our heart.We go about wishing that our situations will change that our lives will go according to Gods will, but know that we can talk to God about anything and everything that concerns us. If what we ask for is not right for us then we wont get it.

Don't be reluctant to ask God for what you want Read More..
