Life Apps - Part 2


God stands ready to help you release the grip of the grudge

Forgiveness works better than grudge holding

Start with the cross

What Rome knew is that once you experienced someone dying on a cross, you’ll never ever forget it.  

What God knew is that once you come face-to-face with the Savior of the world crucified, you will never ever forget it.

We are not just recipients but distributors of God’s grace and forgiveness

Forgiven people forgive  

Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable.  Romans 12:17 NLT

Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.  Romans 12:18 NLT

Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord.  Romans 12:19 NLT

Instead,“If your enemies are hungry, feed them. If they are thirsty, give them something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals of shame on their heads.”   Romans 12:20 NLT

Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.  Romans 12:21 NLT

Forgiveness is aggressive
