Three Reasons to Forgive

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Here are three biblical reasons why we should choose to forgive.

First, Jesus said, “If you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses” (Matt. 6:14–15). One reason to forgive is so God will forgive us.

Here’s the second reason. Paul told the believers in Corinth to forgive so that they would not give Satan an advantage. When we don’t forgive, we give Satan a foothold in our lives and in the Body of Christ.

Finally, Matthew 18 describes someone who refused to forgive, and it says he was delivered “to the tormentors” (v. 34). When we refuse to forgive, we may start to experience spiritual, emotional, and even physical consequences of holding bitterness in our hearts.

So if you want to be forgiven, protected, and free, choose to forgive today.
