This year our word to keep looking back on is DEPEND. It has not been easy, But we are having to look to Him for the funds and education to fix our house. We know that we will come out stronger then when we came into this year.
What is your story for how you are depending on God?
Anger and defense
Jesus says we need to heal the fractures now!
Two words that Jesus uses for anger.
- impulsive anger, explosive anger
- long term anger, that always simmering anger until you blow up.
V.23 therefore!!! What's it there for?
When you give your gift... reading your bible, worship, giving.
and there remember... it comes to mind, things come up from your past or from the back burner.
That your brother has something against you... the fracture is in them,
If you want healthy relationships don't let anger have a place in the other person or yourself.
Leave you gift and deal with it...
Are you playing church or really following Jesus?
-Playing church will act as if nothing wrong!
-Following Jesus will try and heal the fractures!
You can't go back and try to make the other person see that your right. You have to just go in apologize for the wrongs, see if they have anything to say and move forward.
The only way to attain mercy is to say sorry for our sins and allow God to step in.
Who do you need to reconcile with today? Let's be the Church who stands in the gap and is praying for the fractures of ourselves and others.
I'm praying for you and your relationships that God would heal your families and friends.
