Forgiveness is a choice. That means that you are capable of doing it. Capability is based on the works of Jesus. In other words, when you received Jesus Christ as your personal savior, according to Romans 10:9-10, you were given the ability to choose. That means that the born again believer cannot say that he or she cannot forgive. He or she may not forgive because of a lack of desire to forgive, but because the Holy Spirit lives on the inside, the ability to forgive is there. In other words, there is no excuse for the believer to walk in unforgiveness.
Ephesians 1:4 teaches us that God chose us to be in Christ. Isn’t it great to be chosen of God. God also teaches us that Him forgiving use is dependent on us forgiving others. You can forgive because God made you capable of forgiving. Don’t say that you can’t forgive because of how severe someone treated you or what they did to you. You can forgive because you have Christ.
