Everyday Forgive Like Jesus
I love people. People also make me crazy and more so the ones I love who’ve hurt me. Often, it’s hard not to carry the offense around and let it go. You’ve probably heard, “WWJD,” “What would Jesus do?” but really the question should be: “What DID Jesus do? He loves and forgives, and Jesus asks us to forgive others as He does.
ONLY through the Holy Spirit power can we be set free. Ask yourself the questions, “Is it enough for God to know my pain, disappointment, and frustration? Can I hand my offense entirely over to Him, move forward and treat others better than they treat me? What if it means only God knows my hurt and nobody else?” It’s a process but that’s how real God has to become to us. You’re not alone. I could sit for hours and discuss my pain with you. But, let’s pray: “God set us free with Your love to forgive others completely as You do for us…everyday.”
