Are you holding on to a grudge? Are you waiting on a apology before you forgive? Have you said youv'e forgiven but get fired up/ bring the topic up in conversations? We need to forgive because if we don't it will hurt us.
Lets look at this parable Jesus tells us.
Peter asked how often are we are to forgive and Jesus responds, basically saying, keep forgiving continually. He goes on to say the kingdom of heaven is as a king taking account of his servants. This parable talks about a servant who owed a debt and did not have the money to pay it off. Well the fair thing for the king to do is sell what the servant has until the debt is paid off. But the king decides to have compassion and forgive him of the debt. What is forgiveness? Forgiveness according to Webster Dictionary is "to cease to feel resentment against (an offender) or to grant relief from payment of ".
Now lets read the next part of the parable:

Lord use me. Guide me. Help me to re-focus on you, and not get distracted by everyday life. Give me eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to follow. I want to grow closer to you every day.
Here am I, send me. In Jesus' Name

Please take time to watch this video. Christians need to stop being complacent and speak the truth!!
"Christians are more afraid about offending somebody rather than worrying if they will be going to heaven or not."

and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I ;send me."--Isaiah6:8
Do you have selfless faith?
We should have the kind of faith where we don't doubt God one bit, wanting only His will to be done. In the Bible we have Abraham who ,when asked by God, was willing to give his only son as a sacrifice. WOW! Now that is selfless faith! Can you even imagine?
Now here is a key question, Are you willing to be put into positions where such faith in the Lord is required? Okay, take a minute, reread the question....That can be a hard question to answer. Even if you aren't there yet, Jesus can help you not think of yourself and put all 100% of your faith in Him. We have to remember the Lord knows whats best even when , to us, it makes no sense. So surrender all of you to the Lord so that He can mold you and guide you.
Lord, Please help me to desire more of you each day. Help me to sacrifice more of myself so that I may have selfless faith. I want to give 100% to You. Not my will but your will be done!
LET GO AND LET GOD

|"I know thy works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no |
man can shut it:for thou has little strength, and had kept
my word and hast not denied my name." -Revelation 3:8
"We serve a God that opens doors that no one can shut, and shuts doors no one can open". So if we have an open door we are to stay there till the Lord moves us. Honestly, it can be hard sometimes to tell if the "door" to something is opend or closed, whether we are suppose to go right or left. But even when it seems like we are all alone and don't know where to go, we must remember the Lord will guide our steps (Prov. 16:9). As long as we follow the Lord and seek Him he will be our guide.
There will be plenty of times where doors will open and close in our life, starting new journeys. So we must stay faithful to the Lord, and get to know Him for ourself. If we want to hear from the Lord and know His will for our life we must seek Him (1Chronicles 16:11). He wants us to draw closer to Him each day, if we invite Him in He will enter (Revelations 3:20).
Lord, thank-you for everything you do in my life. I know there are times I take you for granted so please forgive me. You can have my hopes and dreams , I want to follow your will for my life. Guide me Lord Jesus and help me to put all my trust in you 100% not 80, not 99 but my all in all into your hands. Help me to grow closer to you each day. I can never thank-you enough for all that is given me. Thank -you Lord!
In Jesus Name
