MATTHEW 6:14_Your Heavenly Father will also forgive you.
Take a moment right now and praise God for His willingness to forgive! Praise His heart filled with “mercy that endures forever.”
God has a name – I AM. The perfect name for the only, true, living, and creating God. HE IS “the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever, amen!” And HE IS forgiving.
The Lord Jesus Christ gave up the perfection of heaven to live in a wicked world. There was no other way for you to receive forgiveness and salvation. If there is anything earth people need, it is forgiveness.
This verse leads back to your Horizontal Ledger. Jesus knew this principle was so against your natural instinct, He repeated it. When He teaches a principle a second or more times – take heed. This is not something to leave on the back burner.
If you forgive others for trespassing into your life, the Heavenly Father forgives you.
To be sure, you’ve done plenty of trespassing.
Lord Jesus, When I step off the path of Your teaching, I begin to trespass into places I should not be. Praise You for forgiving me. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ forgives my trespasses—He calls me to forgive!
