Bible Verse for Today
“And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” (John 20:22)
God wants forgiveness to characterize our lives. It is important, therefore, that we choose to obey God and forgive everything – from the smallest trifle to the deepest wound. This is often easier said than done because the devil will always try to poison our thoughts with bitterness. But God does not ask us to do it alone.
Without the power of the Holy Spirit, you can not forgive; it’s too hard on your own. But if you really want it and humbly ask God for help, He will send you the Holy Spirit. This will empower you and help you to forgive.
In John 20:22 Jesus said to his disciples, “Receive the Holy Spirit!” His next order was to forgive others. He says the same thing to you. He wants to fill you with the Holy Spirit and make you able to forgive, but you must ask and receive him.
When you are ready, God can give you the power to banish all bitterness and unforgiveness from your heart. Ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit so that you can forgive those who hurt you.
