Yesterday's preaching by Ps. Christie was very powerful. It was a heartfelt moment as the message striked me and I believe that many were affected. I saw some people who were crying and I can feel their pain. A friend confessed to me that he was also crying as he was touched by it. In some instances, I was hit and I told to myself, "Oh, that was me. I was doing that bad thing!". The main topic yesterday was forgiveness, truly, you cannot receive full blessings if you can't give it to those who have hurt you.

We were forgiven by the Lord and covered by the holy blood of Jesus, to unlock the blessings, why don't we give the same sincere forgiveness to others. This has been mentioned in Colossians 3:13 - 'Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you'. This will result to narrow down the anger, to ease the pain and to move forward.

Yes, forgiveness is against our nature so we forgive by faith. Whether we like it or not, we should forgive and put the complete trust to Him that he will do the works and set your heart free from anger, bitterness & wrath. It is our job to forgive as it pleases Him, we should please God. Also, I believe that forgiveness is a slow process, you just need to let Him do his part by healing your heart and make necessary actions. We should forgive even if it takes a hundred times to do so as mentioned in Matthew 18:21-22 'Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.'

I hope I could forgive myself first, with the all the things that I said and done so I can forgive others with all my heart. Forgiveness should start in our self first, have a peace of mind and heart. I hope God will give me the wisdom and grace to do. Thank you for your Post Carlo.. God Bless you!
