As many as seven times? That is times! So to show you what great lengths I go through to provide you with detailed information, I started the stopwatch on my phone, while I counted up to It took minutes. In MattJesus is showing us how to pray.
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy because on it he ceased from all the work of creating that he had done. Seventy ifies spiritual perfection. So seventy times seven means we need to forgive someone completely, and not let it continue to fester or play over and over again in our minds.
I usually have a whole movie theater going on in there, complete with surround sound, casting myself in the lead role of martyr, of course. May I have the envelope, please?
And the award for best drama queen goes to…me! Not good. Not good at all. The only way we can get rid of it is through the spiritual perfection of Jesus, in us. I now offer my sincere apologies if that song is now stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
We need Jesus to work in and through us. Luke emphasizes continued action. We must die to self daily. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Since Christ lives in me, I must allow his life to flow through me and choose to do so daily, through faith. I must forgive as He forgives. He washed the feet of all the disciples before the Last Supper.
That means He got on his knees, became a servant and hand washed the dirt off the feet of Judas, knowing full well that he would betray him shortly. I want to give that kind of forgiveness. While he was hanging on the cross, He was already becoming our intercessor with God. I have actually begun to use that exact phrase, praying it silently, when someone wrongs or harms me and helps me put it in perspective what Jesus did to forgive me, and I know I must do the same for others.
It is very freeing not to carry Forgive 70 times burden. You will be better off without that on your back. A good example is Job, whom the Lord said was a blameless and upright man who feared God and shunned evil. Satan asked, and received permission to test Job. All sorts of horrible things happened to Job and his family. His three friends began to tell Job all the reasons why they thought these things befell him. On and on they went. Finally, God told Job who was in charge of everything. After Job prayed for those who spoke against him during his suffering, God restored all he had lost and doubled it!
See Job After he prayed for forgiveness for his friends, God listened and granted his request. A good lesson for us Forgive 70 times remember. Forgive others as God forgives us, and we will be blessed! Not necessarily with material things, like Job, but the peace of God which passes all understanding. Much better Forgive 70 times a festering, angry soul. It is similar to receiving manna from heaven. He gives me exactly what I need for that day. I just have to trust him to provide, and go out and gather it. So as I choose to forgive seventy times seven, he is faithful to help me with it each and every day.
It comes down to, would I rather be right, or right with God? We are all struggling with something, and the world does not revolve around me and my problems. So I need to Forgive 70 times an effort to be aware of that and forgive others so that when I screw up, I could hope for the same mercy from them. Treat others as I want to be treated.
