Thursday Matters-December 19, 2019
When we’ve been hurt AND the person who has hurt us isn’t even sorry our flesh wants nothing to do with this person but to reject them. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. But what does Jesus do?” Jesus never rejects us but He does reject our sinful behavior.
The two greatest commandments tell us to love God passionately and then to LOVE OTHERS as He does. So when someone has sinned against us, whether intentionally or unintentionally, we must actively choose to forgive them and then choose NOT to remember their sins against us. Actively choosing not to remember is different than forgetting. In Jeremiah 31:34 God says He will “remember no more” the sins of His people. This is not memory failure. This is God’s choice to no longer hold our sins against us. From 1 Corinthians 13:5 we must destroy “lists of sins” committed against us, mental or actual, written lists. God will vindicate us as He promises. I know it’s hard but do what you know is right rather than what you FEEL is fair…everyday.
