"Nothing whatever pertaining to godliness and real holiness can be accomplished without grace."
Over vacation, Father God impressed on me a new word. That word was Foregivegracefulness (remember, I like to make up words, see here!). This new lingo of mine is the blending of forgiveness and grace, the wonderful ability to look beyond faults, intent, character flaws and forgive. It concentrates on what we can give (or promote) rather than what we can get (or impose...like judgement or punishment). When we forgive we extend a grace of reconciliation, a wish of restored relationship...it is a rescue mission. The Father rescued us with the gift of Foregivegracefulness...We need to be relief workers in the ministry of forgiveness.
When we do, we promote His heart, His vision and His desire. We rescue people.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. John 3:17
Have a great weekend my friends, I have more guest posts coming up and may I ask that you would go and read the latest Bad Sheep
