What if there were no FORGIVENESS?
Inspired by the word prompt of The Daily Spur, and Open Night of dVerse.
PURIFICATION —Just because you don’t believe, doesn’t mean it isn’t so! God does exist, and we will all stand before Him. Never gamble with eternity, it is forever!
Consider your life, is your conscience purified, satisfied that when you stand before the merciful judge, all is right. God gives us time to do His Will.
Confession is good for the soul, seek out a Traditional priest and talk to him. You don’t believe in confessing to another, but then why go to a therapist, counselor, or a best friend to confess your guilt. They can listen but have no power to wash your soul. Only a duly ordained priest can do that in the name of Jesus. “Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.” [John 20:23]
It is a great feeling to be disinfected, purged from guilt, free and filled with His grace; absolution is there for the taking. Confession is an excellent gift from God, and it is FREE. No therapist fees. Try it you will love it! Purification!
ForgivingConnects (One word) inspired this little post here, enjoy the read about forgiveness. If it is God you need forgiveness from remember there isn’t any sin greater than the MERCY OF GOD.
Consider the prayer known as “The Lord’s Prayer” recorded in the Book of Matthew and the Book of Luke, the Bible. The Bible is the word of God.
About the subject of FORGIVENESS!
“Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
Meaning —> For if you forgive men their offenses, your heavenly Father will forgive you your transgressions. But if you will not forgive men, neither will your Father forgive you your offenses. (frightening to think about)
It is therefore when you consider the consequences of not forgiving; easier to forgive, however forgetting takes longer, but with a prayer that to will come sooner than you think. Just relax and let it happen.
