The Power Of Forgiveness
Jesus told us to forgive our enemies.... "But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you," [Luke 6:27] "But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses" [Matthew 6:15]
Whoa---!!! That's tough, isn't it!!? What about this person--? He did this to me--! How about this person?--She said this about me--!! No one said it would be easy--but--did you know that there is power in forgiveness? You see, we live in a world that says there is power in abuse, in vengeance, in controlling a situation with anger--(whoever gets the maddest and can be the fiercest wins-!)---
"Do unto others--before they do unto you!"
Guess who's bible that quote comes from!?
But you know what--God doesn't want us living this way--He says---
"That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God." (1 Corinthians 2:5).
