Forgiveness frees you.

Then Peter approaching asked him, “Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus answered, “I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.”
Forgiveness is truly the key to the kingdom of heaven.
When someone forgives…the kingdom of God manifests in the present moment.
Forgiveness frees us from chains that shackle us.
You may not be able to like the person who wronged you or even be around that person…but Jesus says that you must forgive that person an infinite number of times.
That’s more than saying the words “I’m sorry.”
It’s actually letting go of all hostility in your heart toward that person.
And while you are at it…forgive yourself as well.
Let go of the shame you are carrying over past transgressions.
Turn them over to God.
Forgiveness is always granted.
Jesus gave us the ultimate example of forgiveness when he hung on the cross.
He said, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34).
Jesus forgave…even when no one had asked for it!
Accept that forgiveness, pass it on…and be free.
This is the pathway to wholeness (salvation) and life to the full.
