Forgive for freedom

Pastor Ken Wootton – Highlands Church

Unforgiveness is a prison cell that you hold yourself in! Society seems to be holding onto hurts and grudges more than ever before, digging up the past, demanding apologies. We seem to be always chasing something that may appease the building anger inside. As an individual, it is easy to get caught up in society's hurts and struggles by taking them to heart. By doing this, we run the risk of building ourselves a prison cell that holds us captive to hurts, some of which were not ours.

Mark records Jesus providing a great an antidote to these struggles in Mark 11:25 And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.

Can I encourage you to drop the baggage of past hurts, the load becomes heavier because unforgiveness is a magnet to more unforgiveness and builds on these past hurts. This ongoing process continues to hold you in your self imposed prison cell.

Unforgiveness changes your focus, with unforgiveness, your focus becomes the past rather than the future. Choose today to forgive and begin your journey to freedom.
