From The Heart of Pastor Shane (April 11, 2019)

Several years ago I remember reading about someone who sued over a hot cup of coffee.  Today it seems like people want to get back at others in an attempt to try to hurt other people.  Often times we want to hold the past against other people.  I am grateful that God doesn’t hold the past against us.  God is like the story of the prodigal son, where he runs to meet us and then welcomes us home.

We serve a God who loves us and shouldn’t be afraid of His forgiveness.  We must be just like God and be willing to forgive others for their faults.  Matthew 6:14-15 says: “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

Is there someone that you are angry with?  If you are a believer, never forget about God’s forgiveness for your sin.  We serve a God that forgives and forgets.  In order to be a true servant of Christ we must have the attitude of forgiving and forgetting.

Don’t let another minute go by until you’ve taken care of any issues you have with another person.  Let’s swallow the pride, rid the unforgiving spirit and move on with Jesus.  Let’s seek to be people of true forgiveness.  Amen!
