You kidding me! For our God is a consuming fire!
Although, I am playing! I believe if you are coming to the lord in fear. This is not love!
I do fear the lord! But sometime I laugh at fear. Why I do, I cant tell you.
I would rather you fear him, than think its ok to sin.
And yet I know its ok to sin. Am I nuts or am I nuts!
What God is doing is so unbelievable! So no one can glory less you be in him.
All for the love of man! Not your love, his great love. For god is pure love!
All the love there is, is in God! So if you love you are in God.

To Whosoever has an ear to hear?
The importance of Forgiveness is that it's part of a long list of aspects (Love, Compassion, Mercy ..ect) that together make-up the grace of God.
God's constant drawing of us to Himself, which is only received by a meek heart, is what is needed to obtain the desire to ask to abide in His grace.
When it comes to the forgiveness of the grace of God, we have not or cannot obtain it because we ask not with a meek heart or we intentionally ask amiss, just so we may comsume it upon our own lust.

It is so important that without it we would have to pay for sins ourself. We couldn't really do that could we? It's so important we couldn't do without it.

forgiveness is part of Faith!
It is our duty....And God gives us the free will to chose to forgive or not!
If we don't..we are in big trouble with the Lord. It is a must or else we won't be forgiven.
Because God forgave us we must forgive others no matter how strong our will is to not forgive!

I have tried to forgive my ex-husband for not being there for our child when she was coming up. He didn't support her in anyway. He disappeared for over ten years. Then about 4 years ago, he reappears and begged for forgiveness, he wanted to try to make things right between us. It lasted for a little over 2 years. He is a truck driver and has always made a good pay check. I don't worry about the things he did to me, just our daughter. Help me with forgiveness on this issue.

We are able to forgive because of His grace. We can't do it on our own.

Forgiveness is crucial not only to the Christian experience but to the human experience. I would highly recommend the book "Forgive to Live" by Dr. Dick Tibbits. Often people are told TO forgive and not HOW TO forgive, and this book is great for that.

It is of the utmost importance. Forgiveness in taught also in the 'Our Father'-prayer by Jesus. If we cannot forgive those who have sinned against us, God cannot forgive us. Who are we to judge others if we can be judged. We will be measured by the judgement that we do. Forgiveness sets you free to have a good open relationship with God.

I do believe that every sin we committed do have a consequence that we will pay for it. On earth you will suffer God's anger, you will be punish as His son/daughter. By asking forgiveness means God will cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Believers do commit sins unwillfully but Gods is waiting for you to ask forgiveness.

Forgiveness is not automatic, but obtained from the forgiver. There is no forgiveness nor grace given to sinners without first turning away from their sin. The Commandment is love God and serve God, then I will be gracious to you; the command is not love sin and serve sin, then I will be gracious to you. One must first stop sinning and doing wrong, and then turn to the Lord for his forgiveness, but as long as one continues serving sin and remains active in their sin God will not and cannot excuse them.

Oh my goodness, we would be consumned. No hope, no reason to keep going on, No chance of making it to heaven, no reason to live. As believers, we need God's love more than anything in this world. That is why He forgives us, because we need His love. He does not need us.

It is extremely important. In the Our Father prayer that Jesus gave us in the Bible, close to the end it says: forgive our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us. If you cannot forgive someone, God cannot forgive you your sins. Forgiving doesn't mean it makes right what person did to you, but it makes you free. It is a process. Welcome to contact me junia 6337

Without forgiveness, we can't enter into heaven. When one stays from God and doesn't abide in him always, we must repent and ask for forgivness, in order to be forgiven.
