Ephesians 4:30-32  "And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.  Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.  Be kind and compassionate to one another forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you."

Colossians 3:13  "Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another.  Forgive as the Lord forgave you."

Last Sunday we shared Communion in our Worship Service.  It was a powerful message on forgiveness.  II Corinthians tells us to examine our hearts before taking communion and Pastor share how we can tell if we have a sensitive heart.  Are we sensitive to our own sin?  To the Spirit's leading?  Are we sympathetic to sinners and saints?

If we are so aware of God's forgiveness ~~then we will be obsessed with forgiving others!  Ouch!  That's one that can be hard to obey, but we do it for Christ's sake.

Dear Lord ~ Open the eyes of my heart and examine it.  Lord I want you to find it sensitive and sympathetic to saints and sinners.  Lord I want to be obsessed with forgiveness because I know what the cost was for you to forgive my sins and set me free.  I pray today for a forgiving spirit with a heart full of gratitude for the forgiveness I have received.  I love You.  Amen.
