How do we forgive?

God compensated for our sins that we committed against Him by sacrificing His own life. In other words, the victim compensated for the sins of His offenders. This is a very important fact, because, this is true forgiveness. If we have to accept His forgiveness, we must believe in it by doing like wise. In other words, we must not only write-off what our offenders owe us, but also put our lives on the line in the process of helping them to recover from their sinful ways. If we do not forgive others in this manner, we will not receive forgiveness (Matt 18:21-34).

True

Very will said that is so so true. Only the Holy Spirit can encourage us to forgive and do good to our enemies, amen. It reminds me why Jesus is the perfect sacrifice- Hebrews 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

I agree with everything what you are sayin but just one bit i don't. God is not victim. Never has been and never will be. We owed him a great debt and so we were and are indebted to him yes but he is not a victim.
