Colossians 3:13 "Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you."

Reflection:-

Have you ever thought of how important it is to forgive?

Have you ever thought that when forgiving you shall live more in peace?

When you forgive and make peace with someone, you will have a better
relationship with the Lord, and with your neighbour.

In Peace

Yes, I have. I forgive at all times.

You absolutely do.

When you forgive and make peace with someone, you will have a better
relationship with the Lord, and with your neighbour.
Amen.

peacethroughunity I reply.. It is important to LOVE!!! The forgiveness comes from a loving heart!
Colossians 3:13
"Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you."

Paul is addressing the CHURCH!
Paul is addressing the Baptized, all CHRISTIANS "ADDED to the Body of Jesus by baptism", all "IN the body of Jesus"!
The "YOU" and the "Each other" in the above verse tells you so!!

Christians are disciples they are all the "IMMERSED into Jesus' Holy Body", his ONE CHURCH!!
The Great Commission:
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them..."

Make disciples of all nations, HOW"?? By baptizing them!!
Make disciples of all nations, with all the AUTHORITY of God!
Make disciples of all nations, baptizing them...
Disciples are made by baptism!!

Forgiveness within the Body of Jesus is imperative, Jesus demands it, he expects it!
Colossians 3:12
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

The scriptures tell "US" Christians must LOVE!!!
Scriptures tell "US" Christians to gain ETERNAL LIFE you MUST love!
1 Corinthians 16:14
Let all that you do be done with love.

1 John 3:23
And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment.

The "WE" in the above verse is CHRISTIANS all "ADDED to the Body of Jesus by baptism!"
Christians enter heaven by LOVE!!
As God's chosen people, WE Love and forgive one another!
