Beloved, how has it been this week? Hope God has been faithful, yes! God has been faithful to us and He will continue in Jesus Name. this is our first PCL and we are going to bring an important topic that will bless our soul and help us to grow spiritually as well. It an important virtue after love and as important as it our Lord Jesus gave a teaching on it as He did taught us to love one another as he loved you (Jn 13:34, Col 3:13-14).

 I implore you to read with sober reflection and appear same where necessary in your life. we  live a world where satan has set up his throne and offenses are inevitable but in spite of that the Spirit of God is commanding us to love and forgive one another even as He love and forgave us.

Choose to Forgive

Whoever conceals an offense promotes love, but whoever gossips about it separates friends.—Proverbs 17:9

Jesus gives us stern and uncompromising warnings about forgiveness. But if forgiveness is so important and yet so difficult, how do we go about it? We must do several things.

First, we must not try to minimize or dismiss the offense as if it never happened. If it hurts, then we must face it and feel it. A common misconception that keeps people from forgiving is that they think in order to forgive they must come to the place where they look upon the things done to them as being really not that bad. That is excusing, not forgiving. C. S. Lewis says: “Real forgiveness means looking steadily at the sin, the sin that is left over without any excuse after all allowances have been made, and seeing it in all its horror, dirt, meanness and malice, and nevertheless being wholly reconciled to the man who has done it. That, and only that, is forgiveness.”

Second, we must see that forgiveness is not an emotional thing (though it can affect the emotions), but a matter of the will. It is making the decision that the wrong done against you will not count or cause a separation. In making that decision, remember you have all the resources of God available to you. This applies not just to minor matters like snubs, but major matters like divorce.

The task of forgiving must be more than a match for the magnitude of the pain involved. A choice has to be made. No matter how we are wronged, we can choose out of a desire for love to forgive.

Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, You looked into the eyes of those who hammered You to a cross and cried: “Father, forgive them!” Help me do the same when I am confronted with lesser injury or hurt. For Your own dear name’s sake. Amen.

Mc 6:1-8; 7:18; Isa 43:25

What does God delight to do?

What are we to love?

Receive a soft heart to let go of all offenses ever committed against you. It may not be easy but it is very easy when you love because your heavenly Father commanded to love and the same apply to forgiveness as you were commanded to forgive too (Matt 6:12-15).

Have a pleasant weekend and see you next by God’s grace. Make sure you are in church this Sunday; God has a word for you.

Remain blessed in the Lord
