THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Two brothers, Sam and Bill, were fighting.
Mom stopped them.
Then she said, “Sam, you tell him you’re sorry.”
Then she said, “Bill, you tell him you forgive him.”
When Mom left, Bill looked at Sam and said, “Just wait ‘til I get you outside!”
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
Forgiveness of God is given by “the riches of His grace” through Christ Jesus.
Forgiveness of God is given by the “blood” of Jesus Christ.
Eternal “redemption” is sealed in God’s forgiveness!
What great JOY it should bring us to know we are forgiven when we surrender to Christ!
That joy is constant inspiration to love, forgive, and minister to others!
The forgiveness of God, in a Christian, is EXEMPLIFIED through ministry.
We help those who are in need.
We visit with those who are ill.
We pray with those who are experiencing difficulty.
We study and learn so that we can teach others.
And, the joy of God’s forgiveness, spurs us to publish the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others!
Remember, others may not read the Bible; but they sure read YOU!
Demonstrate the forgiveness of God through joyful living and giving of self for others.
