Choosing Forgiveness Over Bitterness
Beloved, it is only because I love you in Christ and care for your eternal salvation that I ask you these hard questions. Do you have hatred in your heart toward anyone? Are you out of fellowship with your children, family members or friends? Do you take pleasure in hurting others with your words or actions under the disguise of something else?
Everyone has something to be forgiven for according to God’s Word, “All of us have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Unless we are willing to confess and repent of that sin before Him, we will never be forgiven by God. Once we have been forgiven by Him, God then gives us the ability through Him to forgive others. This message, “What about Forgiveness?,” is what the Lord has placed on my heart to share with you this month. It may just help you find answers to some hard questions. – Dr. Don Wilton
