11.15.22     Let Go


Did you know that the Cross is all about letting go?  God the Father is all about letting go? A majority of counseling and life issues are all about letting go?  All of these statements are true and once we can take in the reality of these truths, our lives will become more internally peaceful and stable.

One extremely important verse in the Bible concerning this is found in Matthew 6:14-15 :

 "IF you forgive men when they sin (offend) you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins (offenses), your Father (in heaven) will not forgive your sins."

Ephesians 4:32  "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 for gave you."


Forgiveness does not mean we forget but that we let go of the "right" to hang onto the offense and to get even.  Forgiveness does not always mean this person who offended you is safe for you to be around but it does mean you let go of wishing any evil will upon them or that you continue to talk bad about them. Let go and let God deal with them.  Think about it. Each and everyone of us has wronged someone at some time in our life, intentionally or unintentionally. And it is a simple fact that we need heavenly Father's forgiveness between us and him every single day. We offend him in our thoughts, our speech, and our actions. I am grateful he sees us through the sacrifice of forgiveness his son Jesus made on the Cross.


Think about it. What kind of life do you want?  I want one filled with internal peace and unblocked answers to prayers, with the mercy and goodness of God weaving throughout my spirit and life, no matter what is happening externally.


Check out verses concerning forgiveness towards others, of ourselves, the work on the Cross. You simply cannot love Christ and not be wise to forgive and let go. Lets grow up, become mature in Christ, stop fussing and squabbling and offending. Amen.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, bring to our remembrance of sacrifice that Jesus went through on the Cross to submit a blood sacrifice for our sins, individually and collectively. Let us be mindful of not taking on any offenses and not putting out any. Help us to remember we are all human and have stressful and bad days, hurts and wounds that cannot be seen, and how we would like to be treated as well. Give us wisdom to know when to truly forgive and to walk away, knowing that person or situation is not healthy for us. We desire to be free and healthy in mind, body, soul, and spirit.   Amen www.olivebranchdiscipleshipministries.com

What kind of friend are you?

Posted on May 29, 2015 at 7:02 PM
5.29.15

Friends. Friendship. How sweet it is. It is a good thing to have good, honest friends in your life, or at least one. While we have many acquaintances, one good, honest friend is invaluable. What is your criteria for a good friend?  What are your expectations for a friendship?  The  Bible tells us that for a person to  have friends, he must first show himself friendly. Are you the kind of friend you would like to have?
How about trust, loyalty, steadfastness, honesty, forgiving, patient, kind, generous, humorous, encouraging, comforting, etc.? Then there are the interests in common that give us pleasure to do things together, to enjoy life in each other's presence.  There are many things that make up a deep and intimate friendship; things we want and need, but things we must have our self before we will attract a friend like this.
Why don't we pause today and think about this. Think about who you are and what you offer as a friend. Are you demanding and controlling? Are you fussy and manipulating? Do you require more than you are willing to give out?  Do you require all the attention? Do you do all the talking and decision making? Are you a good listener? Are you patient and kind? Do you take time to encourage and edify?

Remember, you get back what you give out.

What kind of friend are you? 
- Pastor Sandi

Proverbs 12:26  "The righteous should choose his friends carefully, For the way of the wicked leads them astray."
Proverb 17:17  "A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity."
Proverb 18:24  "A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
Proverb 27:6  "Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses."

I can't say what friend I am, you have to ask about it my friends. They know better.
