Forgiveness

 
 

Love is Patient     4 Comments
It is so very easy to become frustrated and angry with those we "love," but what does having a true Biblical love mean during frustrating times?


Christmas Love    
Christmas is the story of true love... a story about a God who loved us enough to send His Son to die for us, knowing the price He was paying...


Icy Roads     2 Comments
With so many challenges in life, it is very easy for us to want to take charge and try to handle everything ourselves, but in the end we find ourselves worse off, and crying for the Help of the Lord, who is always faithful...


A Winter Snow     1 Comments
When we look at things, we often see what they currently are, and not what they can be. The same holds true for people, but God is able to take even below freezing temperatures and make them into something beautiful...


Forgiving Your "Dr. Mengele"     1 Comments
I think in almost everyone's life, there is at least one person you absolutely do not want to forgive. One person who has said something, or done something to you or someone very close...


Crucifying Racism     3 Comments
Today's devotion is not one of political correctness, or even one of encouragement... instead today we need to take a serious look at our own views, and how we perceive others. While racism is not something we like to talk about, or even think about, it is something that we can ALL fall victim to...


Payback     3 Comments
Revenge is best served cold, or is it best not served at all... the world's message of payback is quite different than the message Christ preached...


Hating God by Hating Others?     2 Comments
You cannot hate your brother, and claim to know God. Yet many Christians hold grudges, and if they are not handled properly, these grudges tear people apart, and allow hatred to grow.


Forgive and Forget     6 Comments
As Christians we claim to forgive others for the things they have done against us, but are we really? What does it mean to forgive someone?


I'm Glad I'm Not like Him!    
As Christians we often feel we are better than "those sinners," but are we really?


Judge, Executioner, or Rehab. Officer?     1 Comments
Why did Jesus come to this world? Did he come to show us all our flaws and failures? Did he come to Judge Us? Or did he come to bring Mercy and Rehabilitation?




Luke 2:4-7
[4] And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) [5] To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. [6] And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. [7] And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

[8] But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

[11] Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
