Forgiveness is the center of our faith. Without forgiveness we could not have salvation by faith. The Bible in Matthew 6:15 tells us that we have to forgive others or the Lord will not forgive us.

The Word tells us that when we were saved, He forgave us all our past sins and remembered them no more. We are commanded in Ephesians 4:32 to forgive others as God has forgiven us.

Even though we are saved, sometimes un-forgiveness to others deals us misery. We feel guilty because we know we must forgive others but SELF keeps us from doing so. It puts us under bondage and we keep living in the past. And this can bring on illnesses and spiritual sickness which makes us drift away from God.

God is a forgiving God and the root of His love is forgiveness. The way we view forgiveness always has an impact on our relationship with him. If we want to live a healthy spiritual life, then we must learn to forgive.
