As Christians we are encouraged to forgive and the Bible emphasises forgiveness many times. There are many reasons for this, but one reason that is not often discussed is that it give us strength. The ability to forgive gives us spiritual strength which adds to the strength we receive from from scriptures. Learning how to forgive (download The Four Steps to Forgiveness for free) gives us the strength to overcome temptations, or more truly it weakens the pull of temptations, as we see them for the useless, hollow baubles that they are.

Encouraging scriptures, Verses about Strength, and Healing Scriptures

We can gain encouragement from encouraging scriptures. Yet, also the practise of forgiveness can give us encouragement, it encourages us to stick with a high and noble purpose, or at least helps us to be less likely to give way to an ignoble purpose. Learning how to forgive also brings us healing. By it’s very nature, forgiveness heals the division between our higher spiritual aspirations and our normal daily life. It helps to free us from the pull of those things (such as resentment, bitterness, hatred, jealousy, envy, vengence, etc) which take us out of alignment with true Christian values of love, kindness, forebearance, tolerance and so on. Therefore the benefits we gain from encouraging scriptures, verses about strength, and healing scriptures can all be amplified by the practise of forgiveness.

The Holy Bible and Forgiveness

Yet, how do we actually forgive? The Holy Bible says wonderful things about forgiveness and the “why” of it, but it does not say so much about the “how”.  Forgiveness was obviously a core teaching of Jesus and it has become a favorite topic for preachers. But, preaching forgiveness is not the same as teaching forgiveness. We need a way to put those uplifing inspiring stories, from the Holy Book, into action in our own lives.

We need to be shown how to forgive. Forgiveness is not an instinct. It is not something which most people can do automatically. If it was, the world would be a very different place than it is. Download Free Ebook
