Because if I make you sorry, who is, therefore, what makes me happy, except one who is saddened by me? And I wrote this yourself, for it came and I should have sorrow from those who ought to rejoice; confidence in you all, that my joy is to you all. For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears, not that you sorrow, but to know the love that I have to you. But if anyone has caused grief, I do not have saddened me, but in part (not to be too severe) to you all. Suffice it to such a rebuke by the majority. So, instead, you should rather forgive him and comfort him, lest he be devoured by excessive sorrow. Wherefore I beseech you to assure him your love. 2 Corinthians 2:5,6,7,8.
When the Apostle Paul wrote this letter, he knew of God's commandments regarding forgiveness. He knew I had to forgive your offender so that he could continue the Gospel of Christ. He came to this understanding alone? Of course not! The human naureza not allow that we will forgive those who offend us, but when we give our lives in the Hands of God when we let the Holy Spirit enter our hearts, it becomes clearer to hear the Voice of God with respect to the pardon and was thus What happened to the Apostle Paul.
Why are people within the Church that have failed to go ahead, if you have faith, surrendered their lives to the Lord Jesus? Because the heart infected with hatred, with resentment and hurt and it does not forgive their offenders. Even hearing the word of God with respect to forgiveness, still have the courage to wish evil to others! Certainly, such a person has not passed either by the release. People like that, we must have mercy and pray to the Lord to find the truth and stop deceiving.
One of the best things about the encounter with God is forgiveness. Do you forgive your offender, you are welcome to look at your abuser, is the Lord Jesus Himself that it operates within us. Why say it's easier to ask forgiveness than to forgive. Those who seek forgiveness, to humiliate themselves and earn a place in the kingdom of heaven, those who can not receive forgiveness, hold within the amrgura, hurt, they are arrogant, proud and owners themselves, and therefore certainly not pleasing to God.
Save your heart. If you want to do God's Work in the Lobby or on the altar, never deviate from his heart the Lord Jesus, even if it offends you, that you pass back that betray you, do not let any bad feeling between his heart. Man is full of flaws and defects, but also has qualities, but do not let your eyes be contaminated by something you saw or heard. Focus on where the Lord Jesus. What does not forgive is the greatest disadvantage, who asks forgiveness, and has a clean heart is renewed by the Lord Jesus. Think about it.
Stay strong with God.
