We see that there was some type of correction for the one who caused all the trouble. But then there was forgiveness and love. We are to forgive the erring brother by the authority and in the name of Jesus. By His power living in us, we can forgive. Trust in God’s power. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13). Say it out loud (I forgive you in Jesus’ name) and believe. There is power in Jesus’ name; power to love, power to forgive and power to heal.
You are the very definition of righteous and holy. You are the example that we are to follow. Your word has supplied the instructions that we need for daily living. There is a time for everything. There is a time for correction and a time for restoration. Help us to know when to correct an erring brother and how to do it out of love. May everything that we say and do be pleasing in Your eyes. Help us to love and show forgiveness. Jesus, You forgave while You were hanging on the cross. Help us to get to that point. Help us to see that we have no ‘right’ to unforgiveness. Teach us to forgive as You have forgiven. Praying always and only in Your name Jesus. Amen.
