Forgive Yourself Quickly!
Back in February, 2008 I went on a ministry trip with my friend Surpresa Sithole (www.surprisesithole.com) to Rome. Something Surpresa said to me has been a much needed blessing in my life on countless occasions ever since. As I was bemoaning my personal sin to him he said, “...but you have to forgive yourself quickly though!” We as Christians know that as believers if we confess our sins God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness (cf. 1 John 1:9), yet we often find it difficult to forgive ourselves and allow our own thoughts and satan to batter us with condemnation for a longer period of time than we ought.
