How To Forgive?

How To Forgive?

As has been stated on several occasions to this point there is, in fact, a manual for life and it is called the Holy Bible. This is “book” explains to those willing to hear how make good choices and how to treat one another. Forgiveness is a center piece of the model for life described within the pages of the Bible.

Making amends is a center piece in walking through the Steps of AA. Feeling the pain of others, as our destructive lives rolled over the people around us, is a big part of the healing process for all concerned. Making amends is, at the end of the day, learning how to forgive yourself of the pain we inflicted upon others. Paul, in II Corinthians 3, teaches us how to forgive others and why it is important to our lives. Similarly, as I leaned in AA about making amends, Paul places the emphasis upon cleansing our soul through the forgiveness of others. Forgiveness, clears the air, invites the Holy Spirit into the space between the parties and fills the hearts all concerned. Christ Jesus, Our Lord, is placed at the center of our lives and the enemy is chased out. Simple but, sometimes, not easy.

1 But I determined this within myself, that I would not come again to you in sorrow.
2 For if I make you sorrowful, then who is he who makes me glad but the one who is made sorrowful by me?
3 And I wrote this very thing to you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow over those from whom I ought to have joy, having confidence in you all that my joy is the joy of you all.
4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you, with many tears, not that you should be grieved, but that you might know the love which I have so abundantly for you.
5 But if anyone has caused grief, he has not grieved me, but all of you to some extent—not to be too severe.
6 This punishment which was inflicted by the majority is sufficient for such a man,
7 so that, on the contrary, you ought rather to forgive and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one be swallowed up with too much sorrow.
8 Therefore I urge you to reaffirm your love to him.
9 For to this end I also wrote, that I might put you to the test, whether you are obedient in all things.
10 Now whom you forgive anything, I also forgive. For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ,
11 lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.
