A man or woman of God give the best sermon about forgiveness yet a good percent of the congregation will go to sleep with somebody they did not forgive. You get preaching about anger but before the sunset, something would have made you angry.
Our main problem is that we leave more in the flesh than in the spirit. When two dogs fight the one that is well fed wins. If you feed your flesh more than the spirit, your decisions will be informed by the flesh.
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
It’s easy to recite a verse that the Spirit lives in me but does it inform your actions? Can you not forgive when Christ live in you? Will you talk bad about another person when Christ is with you?
Make the Word the standard of your life, it will speak within you before you speak. When confronted by a situation, the Word will speak love, Instead of hush words, you’ll forgive. Matthew 10:19-20 But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.
