To Forgive

TRUTH: We all know Christians are supposed to forgive. THE PROBLEM: But many of us Christian Atheists think that there are exceptions to this rule. Hebrews 12:15 says, 'See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.'THE CLARIFICATION: My Friends....The root of bitterness grows in the soil of hurt that has not been dealt with properly. EXAMPLE: When you pull a weed from the ground, if you don’t get the roots, the weed will return. THE PARALLEL: So it is with bitterness. Fortunately, Scripture shows us how to kill the root of bitterness. And unfortunately, we Christian Atheists are often skilled at avoiding this spiritual medicine. According to Ephesians 4:31-32, the only way to eliminate the root of bitterness is forgiveness. FACT: It's easier said than done. That's why we need each other as the church. 'Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.' LET'S DO SOME WEED PULLING THIS YEAR. SHARE THE LIGHT OF CHRIST WITH OTHERS! ~ adapted from G. Groschel
