1 JOHN 2:12 NLT
12 I am writing to you who are God's children because your sins
have been forgiven through Jesus.
COLOSSIANS 3:13 NIV
13 . . . Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
GALATIANS 5:14 NIV
14 The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your
neighbor as yourself."
For many people, the hardest person to forgive is themselves.
If God can forgive us, then we can, and must, forgive
ourselves. Not to forgive ourselves is to exalt ourselves above
If God can decree that we are forgive-able, but we say we are
too bad to be forgiven, we are saying we know more than God.
Should your standards be higher than God's standards? He
forgives. Why won't you forgive yourself?
The devil wants you to stay focused on your past and your
failures, so you will not receive God's blessing.
God wants you to believe His Word and focus on His victory so
you will have a better future.
Which one will you choose to follow?
SAY THIS: Because God has forgiven me, I forgive myself.
