Forgiveness Friday marks the beginning of a new chapter in our teaching here at VABWM. Each Friday for the foreseeable future we will present a short lesson on FORGIVENESS to help you enter into the weekend of praise and worship.
Today we are going to talk briefly about how to make a change within you, by learning to have a spirit of forgiveness. So many of our physical problems stems from what we call, a condition known as uneasiness from our spirit.
When we hold grudges against another person that we feel has done us wrong, those feelings blocks the sunlight that the cells in our bodies need to keep us whole. FORGIVENESS for some of us is a very hard thing to do when we feel very strongly, that another person has done something against us.
Now please allow me the opportunity to discuss with you the art of forgiveness. The art of forgiveness begins when you forgive someone for the wrongs you feel they have done to you. It is having a humble spirit and being done with pride and self-pity. It is taking a step towards the practice of forgiveness.
Hate is death, forgiveness is life, and learning to live in the presence is a joy that will outlast anything that you can ever imagine.
Now let your spirits be lifted up, humble yourself and seek forgiveness from the Lord, and forgive those who have trespassed against you, release all negative thoughts, feelings, hate and animosity; now go within yourself and just begin praising and thanking the Lord for His mercy and grace over all situations.
