The Lord Jesus Christ taught us to forgive lest we carry the spirit of offense and hurt. Forgiveness is letting go of our hurts to the Lord. Unforgiveness attracts demons of bitterness and anger.
To forgive someone 70 x7 implies that the offender has hurt you 70x 7. There's no man who has the power to forgive hurts except the Lord Jesus who declared on the Cross to his perpetrators ," Father forgive them, they do not know what they are doing."
When the Lord Jesus Christ enters the human heart through His Spirit we produce the fruit of the Spirit which is love. Love covers a multitude of sins, our own and others as well.
The Lord Jesus Christ has forgiven us 70 x 7 , nay a million times and is still forgiving us for our infractions. Shouldnt we manifest His Nature towards others? JP
