The posture of Christianity, forgiveness 4/18/16

Matthew 5:44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do
good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use
you, and persecute you;

This is something that we have to do, if we want forgiveness ourselves. It’s the fastest way to free yourself and restore peace to your mind and soul.
When we are wronged, we have leverage in the Kingdom if we would just pray for the ones that have transgressed. Yes, it can be difficult but its not impossible. When we rightfully see ourselves in truth , we will recognize that we were enemies with God when we did not follow or obey. There are even those in this world who endeavor to eradicate the word of God and followers there of.
Who could possibly need more prayer than those?! As humans, we all stand before God, sinners and undeserving. So, God makes sure to explain to us, multiple times in scripture why our posture needs to be that of forgiveness and forbearance.
If we want to remain upright and steadfast in the Kingdom, we will harbor no animosity, no hatred, no malice. We have to learn to see past the sin and recognize the sinner. Most of whats done against us is actually done against God, the light of God upon us is what the enemy wants to tarnish.
