1 Cor. 13:13, And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE, BUT HOW CAN YOU LOVE IF YOU NEVER FORGIVE?
The truth is that we have all been hurt, offended, wounded by others, and we have also hurt, offended, wounded others. Life is filled with wounds from people because people are imperfect and some are even simply mean.
EVERYONE IS GOING TO GET HURT!
THE CYCLE OF LOVE:
Say this with me please…..
Every time I LOVE, I become VULNERABLE.
Every time I become VULNERABLE, it is INEVITABLE, I will be HURT.
Every time I get HURT, I must FORGIVE, or I cannot LOVE AGAIN!
This is what the Father does with us.
The Creator, the King, the Master has become vulnerable to us with His love. Every time we sin we are offending Him. Thank God for Jesus!! Father loves us so much that He does not throw us away, but that He sent His Son to die for our offenses. Father loves us so much He became vulnerable, we hurt Him when we sin, and He FORGIVES us when we ask!
WHEN YOU AND I CHOOSE NOT TO FORGIVE SOMEONE, THEN WE STOP THE CYCLE OF LOVE AND BECOME HARD-HEARTED, BITTER, NASTY, COLD, CALLOUS, UN-CHRISTLIKE CREATURES.
Are you holding a GRUDGE?
Do you HATE someone?
Are you BITTER?
IT IS TIME TO GET FREE FROM THE PRISON YOU HAVE PLACED YOURSELF IN…….FORGIVE THEM!
