God is the one who is in charge of payment. He is the judge. He wants us to exercise the ability to WITHHOLD judgment and let God perform His program of restoration and forgiveness. Forgiveness is the removal of information and the pain of it. THERE IS NO ENTRY INTO HEAVEN UNTIL WE WALK THROUGH THE GATE OF FORGIVENESS. No rewards, no blessings, nothing until all hurt and pain has been wiped away.
FORGIVENESS COME IN TWO PARTS:
1. We must forgive people who have hurt us whether it was on purpose or not. The pain of hurt can be real or just imagined. It may have happened or not, but the pain is the same if you believe it did happen. So all the hurts, little or big it doesn’t matter it must be forgiven.
2. We must make sure we forgive OURSELVES also. There a lot of people who have never forgiven themselves. DON’T ADVERTISE YOUR MISTAKES. Put the memory of them at the foot of the CROSS.
