TASTE THE SWEETNESS OF FORGIVENESS
TASTE THE SWEETNESS OF FORGIVENESS (Photo by Pastor Davis)
Now is the time for you to “BREAK THE CHAINS OF REMORSE AND REGRET,” that is keeping you locked in a prison that always seems impossible to escape because your mind is filled with hate.
How do you ever expect to enter into the Kingdom of God when you have so much hate in your heart for your fellow man? The word of God says, if anyone boasts, “I love God,” and goes right on hating his brother or sister, thinking nothing of it, he is a liar. If he won’t love the person he can see, how can he love the God he can’t see?
The command we have from Christ is blunt: Loving God includes loving people. You’ve got to love both. (1 John 4:20-21 MSG) Forgiveness frees your mind from the burdens of the past so you may walk victoriously into the future. Forgiveness should become a habit.
When Peter asked Jesus, how often should we forgive others, he answered; “Until seventy times seven.” He who forgives to infinity will never hate. Forgiveness should start now. Putting off forgiving only deepens the wound. Clinging to bitterness postpones happiness.
Life is short, time is fleeting. Today is the day to forgive. Take this moment and search your heart for the list of those persons who you know you should be forgiven and take the first step and make it happen. When you do this you will, “BREAK THE CHAINS OF REMORSE AND REGRET!”
