The teaching of the Bible makes us understand how important it is to forgive others since we have been forgiven by the blood of Christ. Therefore, we should forgive those who do things harming our interests because we are able to stand firm before God by the grace and mercy bestowed by the Lord. When we repent, our sins are completely forgiven because of the death and resurrection of Jesus. But, it’s really hard for us to forgive others when they harm us. We always struggle and pray before we forgive others. When we cannot forgive others, we will fall in pain and hatred, feeling so depressed. Actually, forgiveness is not only about others, but also about our own spiritual growth. Here are 8 verses about forgiveness to help us love others and build right relationships with others by forgiveness.
For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
And when you stand praying, forgive, if you have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
Judge not, and you shall not be judged: condemn not, and you shall not be condemned: forgive, and you shall be forgiven.
Take heed to yourselves: If your brother trespass against you, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
And if he trespass against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to you, saying, I repent; you shall forgive him.
And be you kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you.
1 Corinthians 13:7
Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
