“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.” Ephesians 2:19
 “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14
“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth, for your love is better than wine.” Song of Songs 1:2

The Trap of Unforgiveness
The enemy has put unforgiveness as a snare, cage, and prison. Therefore, there is a need for instant, comprehensive, and genuine forgiveness, so that we can evade the trap of unforgiveness. For the spiritually satisfied family, true forgiveness is a spiritual matter- an instruction from God. As a child of God, you do not choose who you forgive. Forgiveness is an instruction and demand from God. It is God-like to forgive.

Imitate your Father!
Ephesians 5:1 says that we should be imitators of God, walking in love, light and wisdom. If you look at Ephesians 4:32, we are told to be kind to one another. Therefore, to be imitators of God, we must be: kind, tender-hearted, and forgiving to one another. Whenever you forgive someone, you imitate your Father.

We live in a fallen world, but our reactions must not be like those in the world, because according to God, you are not mere men. You must remember that any offence against you is an offence against an infinitely mighty God, so let Him execute vengeance on your behalf! God has forgiven you of a greater sin, so why not forgive others?
