Love is UNCONDITIONAL, forgiveness is CONDITIONAL. Many people today confuse these two truths. Jesus loves everyone, no matter who they are or what they have ever done. For nothing shall separate us from the love of Christ Jesus.
However, forgiveness is another issue entirely. We can be forgiven through repentance for sin and IF we are willing to forgive those who have sinned against us, no matter what the sin may be or include. IF we are not willing to do that with authenticity, then we JEOPARDIZE our own forgiveness with God. Pretty simple, and very serious. Just think of the Lord’s Prayer - “forgive us our trespasses AS WE forgive those who trespass against us…”
Let’s always be willing to come to the prayer closet knowing that we have forgiven all those who have offended us. In so doing, we adequately prepare for true repentance and forgiveness that our own standing with God is based upon.
Yesterday is yesterday.. forgive and deal with today.
hugs...love... & forgiveness
