Testimony from the Training on Forgiveness
Because of rampant killing of innocent souls by Fulani herdsmen in Benue State, I developed personal hatred towards them.
Even as a Pastor, any moment my eyes cast on any Fulani man or woman, I feel very bitter inside of me but as a result of this training which we were seriously taught on forgiving one another despite the gravity of the offense.
During the training, the statement of the Instructor; Rev Jonah seriously touched my heart which said that we should not wait for the offender to come to apologize to us before we forgive and also forgiveness must be from the heart and must completely be forgotten matter.
Finally, I was asked to bring my pain to the cross and release it to Jesus in Prayer. And when I did this, the hurt and bitterness in my heart towards the Fulani people ;left me instantly with all their killings and destruction of our crops and properties, I have forgiven them. This is because Jesus has healed my pain.
