ForgivenessWednesday, September 28, 2016
Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
If you are having any challenges with your family, friends, people at work or church, the verse above could probably shed some light for you.
If you're angry, get rid of it! If you're bitter or have a bunch of words in your thoughts about someone that you know are not Godly, get rid of them! Are you sharing some bad reports about someone? Stop! Do you have thoughts such as “it’s not fair what they did to me” or “they are totally wrong and need to know it." They might seem like reasonable thoughts but not if your desire is to follow the Lord’s way of thinking. Romans 8:6 says to be carnally minded (sense and reason without the Holy Spirit) is death, but to be Spiritually minded, is life and peace.
Be kind, tenderhearted or gentle and forgive one another. The Bible does not say to just forgive those that deserve it or ask for it. You are to forgive everyone just as God has forgiven you of ALL your sins through Jesus.
You might think that you just cannot find it in yourself to forgive. You're in Christ! So ask Him to help you! He will! Then pray for that person. Ask The Lord to show you what to pray for them and for anything you can do or say to them. Blessings will be coming your way!
Enjoy being blessed,
