Key Quote:


For with the judgment you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. - Matthew 7:2

Key Points:

  • Surrender as part of the Christian approach to forgiveness
  • Thirteen steps to forgiveness:
    • Step 1: Ask the Holy Spirit to show you who you need to forgive.
    • Step 2: Picture the person in front of you and pay attention to how you feel.
    • Step 3: Make an account of the debt they owe you.
    • Step 4: Imagine yourself telling them what they did to hurt you and how it has affected you. If you can, notice that this is not the person they were designed to be. Separate their dignity from the evil they have done.  
    • Step 5: Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you what you believe about yourself based on that incident.
    • Step 6: Renounce the identity lies.
    • Step 7: Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the judgements towards the person who hurt you.
    • Step 8: Renounce those judgements.
    • Step 9: Ask Jesus to forgive the person. Invite the person to stand at the cross with you.
    • Step 10: Forgive the person.
    • Step 11: Pray a prayer of blessing over that person, ask God to bless them in the opposite way they hurt you.
    • Step 12: Ask Jesus to seal his forgiveness and heal the wounds.
    • Step 13: Thank God for his healing.
