I have three gifts that need to be at the top of your list this year and the impact will be life-changing!

Gift #1 – Forgive Yourself

Quit looking back and letting your mistakes define you.

2 Corinthians 5:17 reminds us that “if any man be in Christ he is a new creation. Old things are passed away and all things become new.” Even the times where I have walked away are covered by grace, and the truth that “If I confess my sin, He is faithful and just to forgive my sin, and cleanse me from all unrighteousness (I John 1:9).”

The enemy, whose surname in Revelation 12:10 is “the accuser of the brethren” has kept you in captivity long enough to the scars of your past.

Gift #2 – Forgive Others

Ephesians 4:32 instructs us to “forgive one another, even as Christ has forgiven us.”

We can forgive because we have been forgiven! Bitterness and vengeance is a prison with no bars. You hold the key.

It doesn’t mean that we forget. Instead, like God in Isaiah 43:25, it means that we choose not to remember. We choose not to hold someone’s sin against them any longer.

Gift #3 – Forgive God

In Jeremiah 20:7 the prophet Jeremiah says, “You deceived me, Lord, and I was deceived…”

Even though God is not in need of forgiveness, having never sinned, He gets blamed for many things that should be attributed to the fact that we live in a fallen world.

Pain, loss, hurt, and even death will one day be finally overcome, but for now we live in a world that is fallen–a world that Christ came to redeem–and that’s the story of Christmas!

For His Glory Alone,
Gary Cramer

    those messages spoke to my heart. I have trouble forgiving people who stole from my daughter. I confess to the brethren that I wanted to kill that man. You ee, I took him and his mom into my home, and then they stole from me and my daughter. I forgive them by faith

    I am not agreeing to the point given in Gift #3 – Forgive God.
    I think this is taken out of context and some commentaries say that Jeremiah was somewhat perplexed when he said this. Who are we to forgive God? We are His creation and we are the clay and He is the potter and how can the clay forgive the potter?
    Pls do not publish such messages without looking at the content, credibility and the authenticity. If we do not understand the Word properly, it may lead to such statements.

      Concordo. Que é isto de Perdoar Deus? se o mundo está como está é porque é um mundo caído pelo pecado original. Isso é o mesmo que blasfêmia contra o Espirito Santo. Jeremias é considerado o Profeta chorão, lamentou muito, assim também como nós lamentamos e o lamento nada mais é que uma murmuração e murmurar é pecado.

    I was not looking for this and It found me. Thank you so much for the message. This has meant the world to me, and it was a message from the Lord. I needed to hear all three of these things. God has truly spoken to you for me. Thank you. My Chains are broken, and I have been set free, and whom the Son sets free is free indeed! Merry Christmas and God bless you.
