Day 4, March 23, 2022 - "Forgiveness"
Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times. (Matthew 18:21-22)
Anyone you forgive, I also forgive. And what I have forgiven—if there was anything to forgive—I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes. (2 Corinthians 2:10-11, NIV)
Your relationships with people affect your relationship with God. Invite the Holy Spirit to help you honestly examine your relationships with your family, friends, brothers and sisters in the Lord, and coworkers, or even someone who has already passed away. Are you avoiding talking to anyone because of a previous incident? Are you holding a grudge against someone for what they did or said to you or someone else you care about? These might be indications that you need to forgive that person(s). Meditate on how much the Lord has forgiven you and continues to forgive you. Make a decision to obey God and forgive (release) anyone who has offended you so that God can forgive you when you offend him (Mark 11:25), and so that Satan will not gain an advantage over you.
