Forgiven so that I can forgive
Now I've found the greatest love of all is mine
45One of the experts in the law answered him, "Teacher, when you say these things, you insult us also."
I know there are times when I need to hear what I do not want to hear. The words hurt and the message cuts right to the heart, but the cutting is the only way to heal the infection. Were You insulting the scribes and Pharisees? You were telling them the truth.
Lord Jesus is it real easy to tell other people what they need to do. How they need to pull the load...how much of a load that they should be able to carry...where it put the load when they are done.
It is much harder to lift the load and to help carry the load until we reach our destination. Preacher, don't just talk...you also need to walk, with a load in your hands.
Jesus you are the example. You told me of sin and through you death offered a means of forgiveness.
Lord Jesus in this day help me to speak truth in love. Help me in the situations that I find myself in to be an example of your grace and goodness.
