Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
When we’re born we have so much to learn. We have to learn how to speak, walk and write among many other things. But no one has to teach us to do the wrong thing. No one has to show us how to be selfish, ruin relationships or be proud – among many other things! We know how to do this and sin from the very early stages of life.
Because of this it means that every one of us needs the forgiveness that God offers. The amazing thing is that God provides a way for all of our sins – past, present and future – to be cast away from us. All we have to do is confess our sin, turn from it and accept the saving grace offered through the death of Jesus on the cross. This is simply how extravagant God’s love for each of us is.
When we forgive others our hearts don’t become hardened and bitter, we’re given peace of mind and most importantly we’re obeying God. Forgiveness means we’re letting go, moving forward and not allowing it to rule our lives. Often it is a journey and it isn’t always as easy as it sounds but it is key to our growing relationship with God. Is there anyone we need to forgive today? If so, ask God to help you do this, just as He does for us when we sincerely ask Him.
With love & blessings, Sandra
