HeaderPower of forgiveness

Mark 11:25 “When you stand praying, forgive anyone you have anything against. Then your Father in heaven will forgive your sins.”

The power of God’s forgiveness is incredible. It clears the heart, it clears the mind, it teaches us the process and prepares us for forgiving others.

Resentments can prevent positive spiritual growth. Our character in the process of recovery can be measured by how we react under pressure. Accepting other people is easy when they are doing everything you think they should be. The test for us in how we are progressing is how do we react when others do things we don’t agree with.

Recovery is about developing spiritual maturity as a way of daily living.  God forgives us when we don’t get it right and we need to learn to do the same with others.

  • How are you treating others who think, act and believe different to You?


Prayer:
Lord help me to accept people’s differences and treat everyone the same.
