In order to truly follow Jesus, it takes a firm decision. One of the commands He gives us is to forgive, and that can be very difficult to do.
We will be forgiven as we forgive those who sin against us.
The Steps to Forgive Someone:
- Decide – I need to forgive this person. And talk to God about the whole thing.
- Voice your forgiveness — “I forgive _______.”
- Put all your painful hurts and thoughts at the foot of the Cross. Lay it all down before Jesus.
- Ask Jesus to come and heal you.
- Bless your offender.
