10 Bible Verses on Forgiveness

The Lakes and Boat

Welcome to “Avoid Temptation Tuesday”. I hope you are taking advantage of my month long experiment by assigning a category to each day of the week. If you choose to keep up with my posts, you will be disciplining you life with memorizing scripture, confessing your sins, meditating on the Word of God, praying and learning about heroes of the faith. I encourage you to participate in this experiment with me. I promise your faith will be strengthened at the end of August.

The purpose of “Avoid Temptation Tuesday” is to focus on a particular sin. Sin hinders our prayers from being heard by the Lord so you must keep your sins confessed on a daily basis. We can’t keep a “pet” sin in our lives if we want to have our prayers answered. Today our focus will be on Forgiveness. Corrie Ten Boom said, “Forgiveness is an act of the will, and the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart”. Ask the Lord if you are harboring unforgiveness in your heart towards anyone. If you are, then most likely you will need to go to that person and make it right according to Matt. 5:23-24. You cannot have a proper relationship with the Lord, if you don’t have proper relationships with people. Here is a list of 10 Bible Verses focused on either unforgiveness, forgiveness or bitterness. Please take the time to meditate on these scriptures.

10 Bible Verses on Forgiveness

  1. Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Matt 5:23-24 (NKJV)
  2. For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matt 6:14-15 (NKJV)
  3. Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. Matt 18:21-22 (NKJV)
  4. And his lord was wroth (angry), and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses. Matt 18:34-35 (KJV)
  5. And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses. Mark 11:25-26 (NKJV)
  6. You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD. Lev 19:18 (NKJV)

  8. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you. Eph 4:31-32 (NKJV)
  9. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Therefore
    “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
    If he is thirsty, give him a drink;
    For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Romans 12:19-20 (NKJV)
  10. Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Gal 6:1-2 (NKJV)
