Welcome to our #MondayMoment!

Each Monday we will ponder questions of the faith that when answered in prayer can open our minds and hearts to an authentic personal relationship with Christ who above all invites us to a true inner conversion of heart.

We are eager to journey with you as we seek Christ's will more faith-FULLY.


Take a #MondayMoment to pray with this question - Have you forgiven others?

Being willing to forgive others, no matter what the circumstances might be, is essential to a covenant relationship with God. As disciples of Jesus, we can only live meaningfully within the family bond established by God with us through His Son Jesus. And living within our family bond with God means that we avoid sin and resolve to live in obedience to God’s will and His teachings. Our discipleship will therefore be jeopardized without a strong commitment to forgive others.

There are two reasons as to why forgiveness of others lies at the heart of our covenant relationship with God: 

First, Jesus forgave us unconditionally through His death and resurrection. He died for us so that the Father could offer us eternal life, to live without sin and to become conformed to the image and likeness of Jesus. We have received God’s grace through no merit of our own. And Jesus wants us to be like Him in all our relationships with our fellow humans.

Secondly, an equally convincing argument to forgive others is that our own resentment and hatred of others will consume us and ultimately, either restrict our spiritual and psychological well-being, or even destroy it. When we harbor resentment and bitterness in our hearts, we remain in desolation. We are under the influence of the evil spirit and become slaves of our wickedness. We are not living in the peace and joy of the Holy Spirit.

Ask the Holy Spirit to help answer this important question: Have I forgiven others? Ask the Holy Spirit to give you an unrelenting desire to forgive without ever counting the cost.

Sadly, there will be times when reconciliation with others will not be possible, even when we are willing to go all the way. However, we can always attempt to forgive others in our hearts even when reconciliation is not possible with them.
