For If You Forgive Other People

One of the big questions Jesus asks us during Lent is: will you forgive your brother or sister, child or parent, stranger or friend of their sins. Some folks say that if that person is truly sorry for their sin then they'll forgive them. Jesus hits home hard on this one because He asks us to forgive without strings attached; to forgive with God's Love.


When does Jesus say this and what are His exact Words? He says it here:

7 “When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.

9 “Pray then in this way:

Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your Name. 10 Your Kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one.

14 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; 15 but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Matthew 6:7-15


Jesus tells you that the evil one will try and prevent you from forgiving but Holy Spirit will make a way so that full forgiveness is possible: and your heart will remain righteous before Heavenly Father.
