Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
Colossians 3:13 NIV
As a child, I can recall that if I had an issue with someone, or they had an issue with me, it was dealt with in a manner that we could still be amicable after the discussion. Today, it’s a bit different. When individuals, families or organizations have issues with an opposing mindset or belief system, rage is ignited.
Our prayer today has been, “Father, we desire to be one, operating in the bonds of love and forgiveness.” When we consider that God has forgiven us, and some of us had MUCH to be forgiven, how then are we unable to forgive one who just doesn’t believe as you believe? Today, I want to EMPOWER you with this thought – Let’s Forgive!
Father, I come to you in the Name of Jesus, asking that you would create in me a clean heart and renew the right spirit within me, that I am able to forgive others as you’ve forgiven me. Father, I thank you. Amen
