It’s not an easy journey, to get to a place where you forgive people. But it is such a powerful place, because it frees you. ~Tyler Perry

John 20:19-23 – New Revised Standard Version
19 When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors were locked where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.”
20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
22 When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.
23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”
Jesus gives the disciples his peace and the gift of the Holy Spirit.
