For if you forgive men for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions. Matthew 6:14-15
And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your transgressions. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions. Mark 11:25-26
Quotes by: Bob Gerity
“You are to petition the Lord to do His will, you are to sin no more and go, and to study yourself approved. Love thy neighbor and love thy God…In Matthew 6:14 we are told, “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”….You need to prepare yourself to forgive everyone. The brother, the sister, the neighbor, the mechanic, the banker, the president, the apostate Church, the (propagators of) false gospels, the deceivers. You need to do as the Lord admonishes us. The proper rendering is, you forgive all. You have to prepare yourself to do that… there is a time that you go through a period of great struggle, because the ones closest to you that have hurt you the most, are the ones that you struggle to forgive. But you’re admonished to do that. And I had great struggle with business associates, and old friends departed on bad terms, but that is a trial that you need to go through. It’s one of the mysteries of the Gospel, to understand that process…..
“Forgive everybody. You…. are the seed of our Lord Jesus Christ, the seed of God (Matt.13:37), born for such a day as this. You’re not a novice in this, you understand the truth of scripture. You have studied yourself approved, you’re in covenant with our Lord Jesus Christ, you’ve repented of your sins, you’ve forgiven everyone that has ever hurt you for any reason, you have purified your mind to do the will of the Lord. ” Quote by: Bob Gerity
