“But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your fallings and shortcomings.” Mark 11: 26
Forgiveness heals the broken-hearted. It restores the missing peace of mind. It creates a new world to those who embrace it.
We live in a world where many things are going wrong. We don’t ask for people to offend us but it happens a lot. In fact, you might just find out someone is set to harm you in your place of work and you begin to wonder why.
The world is filled with the good and the bad. You may try to change the bad sides many times but you can only get this done temporarily because after some times, it will return again.
You may begin to wonder why this and that is not accurate. Or why someone so close to you should be the one in charge of hurting you.
I don’t want to know how far people in your life had committed serious crimes against you. I am writing this post to you to let you know that you have the ability to forgive.
You must not live your entire life in grudge or hatred. You have to forgive. God gives you the rest of your life to live in complete harmony with people and not mess it up.
With the divine help of the Holy Spirit residing in you, you will find it very easy to forgive.
I implore you, do not live on with the pain of forgiveness. Live on the sincere life of a Christian, a child of God carrying the image of Jesus Christ.
“For whoever is ashamed [here and now] of Me and My words in this adulterous (unfaithfully) and [pre-eminently] sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when He comes in the glory (splendour and majesty) of His Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:38 (Amplified Bible)
When a man lacks confidence, believe me, anything can go wrong. He is subjected to making more mistakes than a man with confidence.
Confidence can be gain from various means- from fellow human being, from jobs, from life experiences, and most importantly from God.
And where there is confidence, surely there will be no shame. You will live your life without any complexes, and you will speak of your source of confidence without being ashamed.
In a point where God who is your source of life becomes a lose interest in your life then you must watch out. Watch out, I repeat!
You must not personally destroy your relationship with God. He is never ashamed of your offences. He never condemn your for messing up your life. He never refuses to help you whenever you call upon Him. He never mock you nor make jest of you.
So why should you be ashamed of God? If you keep treating Him like your dog, then He will be ashamed of you too and in every way.
Don’t even pray to fall in the hands of God. He is your Father. He cares for your life and He wants to share eternal life with you.
It will be catastrophic if you gain everything you desire in this world and end up losing your place in heaven with God.
I pray for you that you will in no wise be ashamed of God throughout your sojourn here on earth in Jesus name, amen
