The linking element of forgiveness is repentance. God has given those two things, together, in order for us to find freedom. Many people are looking to be forgiven, but they have never truely repented of their sins. Even God is looking for our repentance, and then He will truely and fully forgive. Psalms 103:12 says, "As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us." If God Himself has forgiven us, who are we that we should hold unforgiveness in our hearts, even toward ourselves? Again, the key here is repentance. If you have truely repented of past sins, then receive God's grace and forgiveness, stand up, and start walking forward in your faith toward Christ and His work for you on the cross. If we hold unforgiveness toward ourselves when He has already paid the price for sin by His death on the cross, then we are nullifying His work for us. Galatians 5:1 "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."
