Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


".......forgive anyone who offends you. 
Remember, the Lord forgave you" Colossians 3:13 (NLT) 

Luke 17: 3-4 (NASB95)  "3 ....If your brother sins, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. 4 And if he sins against you seven times a day, and returns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.”

Father we live in a hostile world that is unforgiving, without grace or mercy. We know that people will offend us even at times as we may offend others. Such is the nature of our fallen sinful disposition. And Father we all need to be forgiven.

Thank you Father for your infinite love, and mercy in which you freely forgive us through faith in your Beloved Son. "7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace 8 that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding."  Ephesians 1:7-8 (NIV) 

Again, Father, you command us: "13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you."  Colossians 3:13 (NIV) 

I pray that people's minds will be opened to the reality that there can be no peace without forgiveness. In the name of Him who is our peace, Amen.
