IF GOD SAYS IT...

Posted:  Sunday, 01 February 2015 11:51 Written by
  For years my sister was one of the wardens at the Kingston Penitentiary. On several occasions we discussed forgiveness. She could never believe that God would ever forgive many of the men and women for the horrendous crimes that they had committed. In her mind forgiveness was for the smaller issues in life but somewhere there must be a line where one would cross into the realm of payback...justice. She also believed the way into heaven was wide...only requiring one to live a good life that practiced kindness...caring...honesty and such...of coarse only to the deserving. Sadly many share her…

HIS THOUGHTS!

  Have you ever had someone say to you..."my thoughts are with you" or maybe "I will keep you in my thoughts?" As considerate as the gesture is, how much more powerful would it be if their thoughts would literally come to us...probably a good thing they don't because that would mean the bad thoughts could come as well. However the awesome truth is that God's thoughts not only come to us...they dwell in us. Romans 8:9-11 tells us that both Jesus and Holy Spirit dwell and live within us. Hebrews 13:5 tells us that under no condition will they…

Let's first make clear holding onto unforgiveness against another does not hold them in bondage...only ourselves. Having said that there are destructive effects for the one being unforgiven. Gods design in forgiveness is to restore, to reset what has gone astray, to reconcile. Reconciliation does not mean to put things back to how things once were...but rather to reset to how things should be. It lends the opportunity to reset relationships to a healthier state...for inner healing into areas of our soul that allowed the offence in that which started the whole cycle to begin with. True forgiveness does not…

OUR CROSS TO BEAR

The staggering part of God's affections is that God doesn't just permit us to know Him...He sacrificed deeply to make it happen. God didn't simply leave an unattainable invitation for us to be with Him...He paid the highest possible price to make it possible to secure an intimacy with Him. That price was forgiveness in the form of Jesus on the cross. No author can conjure up in their earthly brilliance a greater love story. The judge of the universe relentlessly chased after those who rebelled against Him. Mankind made themselves God's enemy by rejecting His affectionate rule and instead…

THE MOST POWERFUL SPOKEN WORD.

  Have you ever considered what is the most powerful word you can speak? It can be expressed in many different ways...it is never deserved but must always be given. It has the power to set people free. It is able to break chains of captivity and at the same time bring healing balm to wounds unspeakable. It opposes all pridefulness as it requires true humility to be spoken. It is for the brave yet in its purest expression comes forth out of our weakness. It is most powerful when it seems almost impossible to speak. Have you discerned what…
