This section is one of the most misunderstood passages in scripture. Many Christians just ignore it because it scares them. Figuring, "If my salvation depends on me forgiving others, I am not going to make it!" Do you understand what Jesus is teaching here? Honestly ask yourself. Look at it:
Mat 6:12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.
Mat 6:14-15 "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you."But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Let's face it. Many of us have avoided thinking to long on this since first coming to Christ. And still avoid it.
These verses MUST be understood in a crystal clear fashion, in order to have a peace filled, healthy Christian life.
Take some time out. Grab a cup of coffee, and find out what Jesus is saying to you here. You will be so blessed as the lights begin to go on. And some serious changes begin to take place in your life.
