The Lord’s Prayer 3 // 03-07-19

“And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven (left, remitted, and let go of the debts, and have given up resentment against) our debtors.” Matthew‬ ‭6:12‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

To be forgiven is like having all the money I’ve ever owed paid off by someone else. Debt can feel like a heavy weight that will never go away and yet Jesus has paid my debt, spiritually speaking; His death wiped what I owe and the relief of knowing I’m not going to be chased for the things I’ve done and am now free, is life changing. But there’s a condition, I need to also erase what I think other people owe me! Holding other people in suspended judgment and constantly thinking about how they are going to pay can be equally as heavy and damaging! Lord, thank You for releasing me, now help me to be willing to forgive others so that I can enjoy the freedom of being truly debt free. Amen 🙏🏼
