'Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?' - Matthew 18 vs 33

Greetings to you dearly beloved of God in Christ Jesus. I am convinced that this message will be a tremendous relief to many, who are currently in the yoke of unforgiveness, having willingness to forgive, but finding it hard to execute, thereby held with pains in their hearts. I am convinced that the Lord has sent this word for such a time as this. You do me a favor by sharing this Article with as many as you can, and share it also on your social media space. God is with you.

Like I rightly said above, there are many (Believers) who really find it hard to forgive people who wrong them. Many right now have that as a prayer point to God, to give them the grace and the strength to forgive their brothers and sisters. And you know one thing unforgiveness does, it inflicts pain, when you hold unforgiveness against someone, you're held in pain still yourself, and that alone is a torment to the soul. As many who have once been there or currently there will understand perfectly what I'm talking about. - Selah

Now, how do you activate the spirit of forgiveness? I want to show you what makes forgiveness easy, irrespective of the offense the other fellow has done against you, God showed me; therefore I want to show you so you too can be free. Relax!

I would at this point like to show you the full story that transpired from the passage given us in our opening scripture. Just sit right there and read to the end, and read carefully;

'23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
 24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. {talents: a talent is seven hundred and fifty ounces of silver, at a hundred and eleven cents the ounce}
 25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.
 26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. {worshipped him: or, besought him}
 27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
 28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. {pence: the Roman penny is the eighth part of an ounce, which after five shillings the ounce is seven pence halfpenny; about fourteen cents}
 29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
 30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
 31 So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.
 32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:
 33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
 34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
 35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.' - Matthew 18 vs 23 - 35 {KING JAMES VERSION}

What an event, and you know what, it's self explanatory. But I'd like to show you some very important parts of this event that you've just read. And these key points are embedded, underlined in the verses 24, 27, 28, 33 and the verse 35 respectively. We see from verse 24 that this particular servant owed his Lord as much as 10, 000 Talents, and we see in the verse 27 that the Lord forgave this servant because He had compassion on him. Waow. But you see from the verse 28 what this same servant who was forgiven that much debt did to another of his fellow servant who owe him just an 100 Pence, he held him by the throat and you know what? He cast his fellow servant into prison. Uhmmm. You know what the Lord said to me as He took me through this story? He made me see and understand that these two men were fellow servants, and the word servant implies that they both were unable, incapable to handle their debts. The Lord said to me, we all are just like those fellow servants, we are all imperfect, having weaknesses. - Selah. That's what this servant didn't realize, he didn't realize that this other fellow is just a servant like him, unable and not having enough just like him to pay, and he cast him into prison. At this point I want us to read the verse 33 again and get the message;

33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?

You notice the underlined words? Even as I had pity on you. - Selah. And that's where the spirit of forgiveness is caught. God the Father wants you to know this day beloved that He has forgiven you greatly, and He desires of us to forgive others also, because you know what? The first servant owed the Lord 10, 000 Talents, and the other fellow servant owed this servant a 100 Pence, signifying to us that there's no offense man does against us that equal the weight of offense we do against God. - Selah

Therefore beloved, this is my secret, when I am grievously offended by someone, I call to remembrance how much I have been forgiven by God; immediately I am empowered by that knowledge, and forgiveness becomes cheap and easy to me. Do likewise!

Therefore, the spirit of forgiveness is activated in us, when we call to remembrance how much we have been forgiven by God.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
