Pastor Kenneth Hagin Jr. stated in his monthly magazine, that sin will take you further than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, cost you more than you want to pay (my Bishop David S. Beacham has said this repeatedly).
Pastor Hagin says this is certainly true of the sin of offense. It will bring you needless suffering and cause you to say and do things you never thought you would. Offense will deter you from your divine destiny and that’s much to high of a price to pay. If you refuse to take offense you will never be out of the will of God and you’ll never fail to receive His blessings. So if you are holding grudges, bitterness or animosity against anyone then let it go. Harboring offense will harm us more than it will others.
Forgiving others is really a matter of choice. And it’s a good choice to make, because when we forgive we open the door for our faith to work.
Remember God doesn’t hear the prayer of those who haven’t forgiven. When you’re tempted to become offended, ask yourself, “Is this where I want to get stuck in life? Is this the level of blessing I want to walk in, or do i want to go further with God? Thanks Pastor Hagin for ths you’ve truly helped me more than you will ever know.
Matthew 6:12-15, And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, ut deliver us from evil: For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory for ever. Amen, For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Forever His Servant
