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...

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?




Matthew 18:21-35
[21] Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? [22] Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. [23] Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. [24] And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. [25] But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. [26] The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. [27] Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. [28] But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. [29] And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. [30] And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. [31] So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. [32] Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: [33] Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? [34] And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. [35] So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

1 John 4:16
[16] And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Leviticus 19:18
[18] Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.
