    I agree and can pray for Christians I don’t agree with or maybe don’t even like. I struggle with non Christian people in my past who have personally attacked my family members and me. Is it maturity in my walk if I want them to hear the gospel before I arrange their meeting with Christ? I know God will harshly judge them but while we wait for that ,our family is in ruin over their evil against us. We don’t know how to forgive them, most times don’t even want to. I want to be the spiritual leader for my family now that I wasn’t in the past. But I can’t begin to understand the depth of love God has for us all including the most dispicable among us. Jeff do us a blog on dealing with the satan filled among us for their wounds run much deeper than our Christian spates with one another.

      I appreciate your honesty, Butch. Many believers struggle with the exact issues you mentioned in your comment. The clear reality is that the whole of Scripture commands all Jesus-followers to forgive everybody for everything, withholding nothing. There is nothing easy about it, but it is clear that we are not allowed to hold on to any unforgiveness. The only way that I have been able to accomplish this is to personally press in to the Lord and learn how to die to myself at ever-increasing levels. Ultimately, we find that we can forgive others only at the level where we understand how much we ourselves have been forgiven by God. Jesus put it this way, “The one who had been forgiven much, loves much. The one who has been forgiven little, loves little.” I believe that, if I can really begin to grasp how much God has forgiven me, I will be empowered to forgive and love all those who have wronged me. Again, nothing is easy about this. Yet, it is still true.
