Matthew 6:12

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

 

This is not referring to judicial forgiveness from the penalty of sin, as that is only obtained by faith in Jesus Christ. This refers to parental forgiveness, which is necessary if fellowship with God the Father is to be maintained. If we are not willing to forgive those who have wronged us, we can’t expect to be in fellowship with God, who has freely forgiven us for our wrongdoing.
