FREEDOM TO FORGIVE
FREEDOM AND RECONCILIATION
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.”
Today, Pastor Brian finished the series Freedom To Forgive with the final step, offering love as an act of forgiveness to the person who hurt you most. We looked at two important words: Freedom and Reconciliation. In order to forgive and find freedom, we must offer love to the person who has hurt us. Next, we look to restore the relationship and build trust with the offender.
Pray that God will help you have a heart that is free from the offense. Confess your need to pursue freedom from your hurts. Ask God to help you protect the reconciled relationship. Commit to always letting love cover the offense.
