“For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” Matthew 6:14-15.
The most holy and difficult word to say in a family is the word, “Sorry.” Why? It is because of the pride of life and strife to be right all the time in our conversations. James 4:1.
A prideful person would never apologise. Pride is a bondage in all of us that must be broken for powerful prayers to arise. Humility is the key to open the doors of heaven, and when it does the gates of hell will not prevail. Forgiveness to others free one’s self of pride, anger and lust. It’s not doing other’s a favour but for one’s soul to be healthy and well. We had ministered to many Christians who are sick to discover deep bitterness and resentments in their lives. Forgiveness brings healing, restoration and reconciliation from God. It is not a feeling, it is a decision.
Apostle Peter taught that if we don’t treat our wife well, our prayers can be hindered. 1 Peter 3:7. This shows how important the Lord’s Prayer is powerful in bringing in the ministry of repentance, forgiveness and restoration to homes and families. Praise God!
To God be the glory!
With Love Always,
