THE FORGIVING LIFE
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8 AMPC
I believe you have been brought from the mighty long way by our Heavenly Father. I believe you have a testimony of your life. I believe God has invested so much in you to make you who you are today. There are things that have changed since the day you gave your life to Jesus; you have experienced the peace that surpasses all understanding of men.
God has done great things in your life. He wants you to live a life worth of your calling in Christ Jesus our Lord. He wants you to have a forgiving heart, and be merciful to all people. God spoke through the mouth of Prophet Micah these things, "He has showed you, O man what is good. In other words God has taught us what we are supposed to do in life.
Then the prophet continues by saying, what the Lord require of you is to do justly, and to love kindness and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God. In other words God wants us to try everyone right, and live humbly and walk humbly before Him.
This morning, I want to encourage you to live a forgiving life. People will come and offend you; some of them will hurt you so bad. You will meet people who will insult you, curse you and despise you for no reason. You need to learn to live above all those things, don't give people power to control your moods; but you need to be in full control of your life.
They say life is not fair; some people will take what is rightfully yours. Some of them will be your close friends or relatives the people you love. Some will betray your trust, other will speak behind your back and some will treat you like a piece of crap. That's life! As a Christian you need to prepare for the worst and be calm in all situations in life. You need to be a good example to unbelievers by living and loving like Jesus. We will start New Series tomorrow, God bless you!
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to live a forgiving life in all the days of my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
