God forgives anyone who asks to be forgiven. When God has forgiven us we are blessed. It doesn’t make us special! If we are truly living in Christ, holding others answerable, or “in-check” over something we believe was done against us, only leaves us hostage to our disappointment, frustration, and anger. The Holy Spirit within cannot coexist peacefully with evil and negative thoughts. Don’t allow yourself to be tortured. Let it go, let God deal with their behavior, and live!
Matthew 18:21-35 Should you not have had mercy on your fellow-slave, as I had mercy on you?” And in anger his lord handed him over to be tortured until he should pay his entire debt.
Ephesians 5:1-2 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
