When we have offended someone, GOD tells us to go to that person and ask forgiveness. Oh, it is so hard to do; we try to justify our actions but when all is said and done, GOD says, "go and ask forgiveness". Then why are we so surprised when they forgive us? To forgive is an act of obedience as is to ask for forgiveness. Without forgiveness from the heart we do not have the capacity to love ourselves or anyone else. We are not only to forgive but be able to accept forgivness to be healed and restored. Ephesians 2:4-5, "But GOD, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which HE loved us...made us alive together with CHRIST - by grace you have been saved." It is the GOD in each of us (not us) that forgives and accepts it. WHY ARE WE SO SURPRISED?
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
