Forgive and Be Forgiven
by Ministry Support on January 3rd, 2022

Given, Not Earned

”He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repays us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.” - Psalm 103:10-14 I want to spend one final day remindin...
Do You Accept Christ’s Forgiveness?
by Ministry Support on June 11th, 2021
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” - Romans 5:8 Over the past few days, we have talked about forgiveness and what it looks like for you to forgive someone who has wronged you. We have talked about the freedom it gives when you are finally able to forgive, and we have talked about how when you are willing to forgive, Christ forgives ...
The Freedom of Forgiveness
by Ministry Support on June 10th, 2021
“And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” - Mark 11:25 When you carry unforgiveness, you are saying that the past is more important than the present.

Newness of Life
by Ministry Support on June 9th, 2021
“If anyone be in Christ he or she is a new creation old things are past away behold all things have become new.” - 2 Corinthians 5:17 Perhaps Paul emphasized forgiveness in 2 Corinthians because he knew believers would struggle with letting go of the past and moving on from the hurt and trauma that haunts their lives. He anticipated that they would struggle living and walking in the newness of l...

by Ministry Support on June 7th, 2021
“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice. And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” - Ephesians 4:31-32 Six years ago, at an art exhibit in the Netherlands stood the profiles and portraits of these beautiful people from the Central African Nation of...
Peace from Forgiveness
by Ministry Support on September 1st, 2020
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. (Ephesians 4:31-32) Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy once said, “Let us forgive each other – only then will we live in peace.” Forgiveness, which means to release, to dismiss, or to let go is the required r...
Show Yourself Compassion
by Ministry Support on June 23rd, 2020
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. (Colossians 3:12) Time and time again, the Scriptures commend those who in the middle of very imperfect situations have compassion for the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the sick, and the imprisoned (Matthew 25:34; Hebrews 10:34). But in order to...
A New Perspective On Failure
by Ministry Support on June 3rd, 2020
For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again. (Proverbs 24:16) We all make mistakes. We’ve missed the mark at one time or another. Scripture reminds us of this inevitable fact when it says all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Some mistakes are big, with huge consequences and implications, and others are small. But we all make mistakes, nonetheless. It doesn’t matter ...
