Well, God just answer your question.
Think about the time when Jesus died on the cross and washes all your sin.
Do you worth it?
Do you put effort to earn the forgiveness?
But He still loves you no matter what you do.
He died on the cross for you even before you were born and before you know Him.
His forgiveness is always there.
How many times you turned your back to God?
How many times you hurt His heart by doing things He told you not to?
How many times you followed your desire instead of His desire?
But still, He loves you and always there for you as long as you seek for Him and ask for His forgiveness.
" So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." Luke 11: 9-10.
Forgiving is an action. It doesnt allow you to sit around and wait for the person to come and say, " I was wrong, will you forgive me?"
Just as Jesus died for you while you were still a sinner.
The world tells you to hate. God says to love.
The worls says you are entitled to revenge. God says to forgive.
Why? Because God wants you to forgive in the same way he forgives you- completely and continually.
God doesnt forgive you because you earn it but because of who Jesus Christ is and what He accomplished for you through the cross.
Thats the model for forgiving others.
You don't forgive because the person come begging for forgiveness, but because you have a Christlike readiness to simply forgive.
So, yeah. Learn to be more like Jesus.
Forgive and Love like Jesus.
You never know how great impact you might bring to your surrounding.
