Jesus Models the Expectation

Jesus models the expectation.
By Pastor Amie Donovan
 
Hebrews 12:15 “See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.”
 
Sin is what separates us from God. Love is what restores us.
 
Jesus, in His great love, took on the cross, paying our sin debt and conquering our shame all so we could live forgiven and redeemed!  
 
The forgiveness of sins is one of the most important and key teachings found in the Apostles’ Creed. We fall short when we allow bitterness to creep into our hearts. The result is we end up enslaved to resentment, grudges, or unforgiveness towards others. However, we reflect the love of Christ when we seek peace, work towards unity, and make allowances for each other’s faults.
 
The Bible displays the secret to learning how to live like a forgiven people. Follow after the one who modeled the expectation, Jesus.
 
We don’t have to do relationships like the world. We can choose to listen to understand, hear what’s not being said, and react in humility with Godly purpose.
 
When we forgive like Christ, we reflect the glory of our God! How you respond to conflict can be an act of worship!
 
God,
Would you guide me in the hard? Would you take my thoughts, direct my words, and adjust my tone this week that even how I respond to conflict reflects your glory and testifies to the forgiveness of my sins! May even the difficult things in life be used as an act of worship to you!
 
In Jesus Christ Name,
Amen

I think I may need to get this prayer printed on t-shirts for my little ones to wear around the house so that i can easily be reminded to reflect His glory in my thoughts, words and especially tone when redirecting and disciplining them. Thank you and bless you!
