***TO FORGIVE OR NOT TO FORGIVE*** THAT IS THE QUESTION? (With apologies to William Shakespeare)

Forgiveness is at the very heart of the Christian faith and walk.

John the Baptist preached it when setting the scene for the ministry of Jesus.....

4 And so John came, baptizing in the desert region and preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. (Mark 1:4)

Jesus died for it.....

28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. (Matthew 26;28)

And forgiveness is a necessary requirement for to receive the forgiveness He died for.....

14 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. (Matthew 6:14)

Forgiveness too, is the message we are to take to the world.....

46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. (Luke 24:46-7)

Surely then, this message is perfectly clear, both to you and to me, and to all who claim to 'walk with Jesus'?

So why don't we live it? We hold on to past hurts like they were our most precious possession, far toooooooo valuable to let go of! Unforgiven offenses greatly abound within Christendom. Many, perhaps most, of the problems of believers can be traced back to unforgiveness in our lives.

Paul understood that unforgiveness leads to a bitterness that destroys us.

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. (Ephesisans 4:31-2)

How do you really tell if a new believer's conversion is real? By hearing them say the (unbiblical) 'Sinners Prayer'? No! I would suggest the real signs of a true conversion are forgiveness of both those we have hurt and those who have hurt us - and what we do with our wallet!

This process of repentance and forgiveness is to be ongoing throughout life as God reveals hidden offences that lurk deep in the murky depths of our soul, and as we are offended against in our day to day life experience.

My wife Kathy and I experienced both grave physical offense and the extreme power of forgiveness when, 3 weeks ago, we were violently attacked in our home by an ex employee. He was being arrested by the Police for theft from our charity, second hand clothing, operation. However, instead of going to the Police Station, he paid us a visit! As Kathy and I were being taken to hospital in the ambulance, bleeding, battered and bruised, we made the conscious decision to forgive Kurt for what he had done to us. A peace came over us. It just had to be God! Since then, we have spent much time comforting others, who have been saddened, angered, that is 'offended', by what had happened to us. Offenses are just so easy to pick up! Even when we have good motives!

We testify today of the power of forgiveness in our lives. Jesus was right when he taught us in the Lord's (disciples) Prayer both to say and to do.....

4 Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. (Luke 11:4)

Forgiveness truly works in life. Its healing power is simply amazing! Take it from us!

What unforgiveness is in your heart today? The time to do something about it is right now. When you have, you will be so pleased you did.

FROM THE WORD

"The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God. It is written in Isaiah the prophet: “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way”— “a voice of one calling in the desert, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’” And so John came, baptizing in the desert region and preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him. Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River. John wore clothing made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. And this was his message: “After me will come one more powerful than I, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”" (Mark 1:1-8)

"“This, then, is how you should pray: ”‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’ For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." (Matthew 6:9-15)

"When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet. And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate it in their presence. He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.” Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, “This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”" (Luke 24:40-49)

DAVID'S DOODLINGS

ON REPENTANCE AND FORGIVENESS

163. True repentance is - a godly principle applied.

164. Personal repentance is a verb, not an adjective.

165. True repentance is an action that results in a life changing reaction.

166. Show me one who walks in forgiveness and talks with their wallet, and I will show you a true believer.

167. It is amazing how a sprinkling of forgiveness can calm a raging sea of hurts.

168. Sadly, the human mind subtly subverts the holy, ‘I Am’, into the unholy, ‘I am’!

187. Forgiveness is unique. The more you give the more you get.

188. Forgiveness is the one thing you can have more of by giving it away.

189. There are two inexplicable things in life - that the bumblebee can fly and that the more forgiveness I give, the more I get.

190. Forgiveness flies away, a leaf borne by the wind, soon to be returned upon the wings of an angel.

378. Medicine heals the body, while forgiveness heals the soul.

379. Forgiveness is a mind soothing balm.

380. Repentance brings peace with God - forgiveness, peace with ones self.

381. The simplest way to avoid repentance is not to sin. All too often I forget to follow my own advice!

1305. True revival is built upon the foundation of tears.

CRANWELLS CARTOONS

17 On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. 18 Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem, 19 and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother. 20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home. 21 “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.” 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”
24 Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; 26 and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” 27 “Yes, Lord,” she told him, “I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.” 28 And after she had said this, she went back and called her sister Mary aside. “The Teacher is here,” she said, “and is asking for you.” 29 When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to him. 30 Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met him. 31 When the Jews who had been with Mary in the house, comforting her, noticed how quickly she got up and went out, they followed her, supposing she was going to the tomb to mourn there.
32 When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” 33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. 34 “Where have you laid him?” he asked. “Come and see, Lord,” they replied. 35 Jesus wept. 36 Then the Jews said, “See how he loved him!” 37 But some of them said, “Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?”
38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 “Take away the stone,” he said. “But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.” 40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”
41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.” 43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.” 45 Therefore many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did, put their faith in him. (John 11:17-45)

LAUGHING AT OURSELVES

***Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused***

*** "Those who can't laugh at themselves leave the job to others." ***

419. THE NEWBORN
A proud mother named Ella brought her newborn baby to a church social one afternoon.

The ladies were all making a fuss over Ella's baby.

Like any good mother, Ella was closely watching her newborn when she saw a little girl approach. The little girl started having a very one way conversation with the infant.

When the little girl began asking the newborn questions, Ella smiled at her and said, "The baby can't talk yet."

The little girl, in all innocence, looked up at Ella and asked, "Does it need new batteries?"

418. CHRISTMAS DINNER
Four-year-old Veronica was asked to give thanks before Christmas dinner. The family members bowed their heads in expectation.

Veronica began her prayer by thanking God for all her friends, naming them one by one. Then she thanked God for Mommy, Daddy, brother, sister, Grandma, Grandpa, and all her aunts and uncles.

Then she began to thank God for the food. She gave thanks for the turkey, the dressing, the fruit salad, the cranberry sauce, the pies, the cakes, even the Cool Whip.

Suddenly Veronica fell silent. Everyone waited and waited.

After a long silence, the young lass looked up at her mother and asked, "If I thank God for the broccoli, won't He know that I'm lying?"


417. THE TRUTH
What folks might say when seeing certain cars with Christian bumper stickers...
* "Don't worry, Billy, those people are Christians. I'm sure they have a good reason for driving 90 miles an hour."
* "Oh, look! That Christian woman is getting a chance to share Jesus with a police officer."
* "No, that's not garbage coming out of their windows, Betty. It's probably gospel tracts for the road workers."

A SELF-EVALUATION PAPER FOR PASTORS By Rodney W. Francis.

NOTE FROM DAVID: Over the next while we will be including questions from this excellent, thought provoking, self - analysis questionnaire prepared by my friend Rodney. I recommend this highly to all who are involved in pastoring.

.............

Pastoring is a very challenging calling, and one that often has many demands placed upon it by people battling through problems and circumstances in life that they would prefer not to have. It is therefore very important that the office of a Pastor is filled by those who have the call of God to be Pastors. We have observed that people with the gifting of an Evangelist often finish up Pastoring. Yet Evangelists do not make good Pastors ~ it is a very different gifting.

This paper is an honest attempt to help those who are Pastoring to be more sure of their calling in God. When we know the will of God ~ and are walking in that will ~ then our lives and ministries will be much more fruitful. Pastoring is a calling, a gifting, not an occupation. I Pastored churches for 25 years, as well as pioneered several others, before God clearly called me into a full-time faith ministry at the beginning of the year 2000, so I do have an understanding of the things a Pastor goes through. My heart is to see Pastors fulfill their calling and destiny ~ that of nurturing and shepherding the people God entrusts to them ~ and to bring them to a place where they can be released to fulfill their calling and destiny as well (Ephesians 4:11-16).

May the following questions help you to clarify more of the call of God on your life, so you will be more effective than ever in the days ahead. There is no greater privilege in this life than to be called of God to a specific task, and to be fulfilling it. It also carries a huge responsibility, because Pastors are answerable to God for the way they treat and lead their people.

YOUR CALLING AND MINISTRY:

How long have you been Pastoring?

Is your Pastoring a part-time or full-time position?

Are you a Senior Pastor, or an Assistant Pastor?

What do you enjoy most in Pastoring?

What motivates you more than anything else?

What do you not enjoy very much in Pastoring?

How did God call you into the function of being a Pastor?

Did you have a specific call, or did you simply have a heart for ministry?


If you feel this self-evaluation paper has helped you at all, please feel free to write and tell us.

Thank you, and God bless you as you endeavour to fulfill the purpose and calling of God on your life.

Your fellow-labourer in the harvest field of Jesus,

Rodney W. Francis.

14: Who or what does Paul say cannot inherit the Kingdom of God?

a. Flesh and blood
b. Men and women
c. Children
d. Angels

SOME CORRESPONDANCE FROM LAST WEEK

David,
First let me start by saying that I am glad you and Kathy are going to be OK.
There is a problem with this weeks question.

BIBLE QUESTION - THE KINGDOM OF GOD
13: What will happen before the Kingdom of God is established?

a. The believers go to heaven
b. Christ destroys death
c. The devil will gather his army
d. The resurrection of the dead

Source: http://biblequizzes.org.uk
The answer is given as:

TODAY'S 'BIBLE QUESTION' ANSWER: d. The resurrection of the dead. (1 Corinthians 15:20-27)

The resurrection of the dead is going to take place at
the second Coming of Christ. The text in 1 Cor. tells us that
Christ will return His kingdom to the Father. see verse 24.

How can Christ give up what has not been established?
The kingdom was established from the beginning of the preaching of
the gospel. It was put in place along with the church on Pentecost.
You mentioned in the past weeks that Jesus referenced the kingdom many
more times than the church. You wrote all the suggestions and questions
about what we do in the kingdom, and you wrote that kingdom living is
the goal as opposed to church focus.
The kingdom exist now, and is not going to wait until Christ return to be established.
Take care, and thank you for PGIM.

Hi Carey

We are most glad that we are okay too! We thank Jesus greatly for His teachings on forgiveness. They really work!

Thanks also for picking up the error in the quiz. I just copy and paste the quiz into the newsletter. I nearly did leave this one out but put it in and was hoping for a reaction! Thank you for providing it! Sadly, you are the only one to date to respond.

Can I please include your response in this weeks issue?

Thank you for keeping me honest!

127. THE KING AND THE ANIMAL LOVER
Once upon a time there was a king named Ed who reigned over a small county in southern Utah. He was a good and wise king, but he had one very bad habit: King Ed just loved animals--all kinds of animals--and he kept bringing them in the castle with him.
He had deer and water buffalo and foxes--all sorts of game in every room of the castle. The people of the kingdom finally got fed up with this stinky situation, and decided that the king must be dethroned and all the game returned to their natural habitat.

It was the first time in history that the reign was called on account of the game.

128. TIED UP
A piece of string walks into a bar, and the bartender says to him, "Hey buddy! We don't serve pieces of string here! Can't you read the sign?" And kicks the piece of string out of the bar.

So the piece of string sneaks back into the bar, and sits down, and the bartender catches him. "Hey buddy! How many times do I have to tell you? Get outta' here!" And kicks the piece of string out again.

So the string is outside the bar, and decides to create a disguise for himself to get inside. So he ties his head in a knot, and roughs up the end on top and walks confidently
back into the bar and sits down. The bartender walks up to him handing him a drink, and looking suspiciously at him, says "Hey... weren't you that piece of string I kicked out
of here just a little while ago?"

And the piece of string replies "No, I'm afraid not!"

129. THE JERSEY
David Beckham, the famous English soccer player, is teaching his new son Romeo the finer points about soccer. After a while Romeo asks his Dad what number he should have on his uniform when he starts playing for a team.

David replied "Wear 4 out there Romeo."

130. OLD AGE
Many people assume that Earl Gray tea got its name by being the favorite of that English earl. However, it seems that there is a small town in Wales named Earl Gray where the town's citizens are getting concerned about the ability of their mayor to continue in office.

The incumbent was initially elected in 1972 and she has run unopposed in every election since. Unfortunately, her age now hinders her from getting about. What the citizens are saying is that . . . the Earl Gray mayor, she ain't what she used to be!

Groan greatly here.....

Condoleezza Rice to Students: Turn to the Holy Spirit

CBNNews.com

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Condoleezza Rice recently told students at the University of Mobile that asking God for guidance has been the driving force of her career -- and that yielding to a "higher power" in difficult times is always beneficial.

The former secretary of state and Alabama native told the crowd of 400-plus students that her Christian faith and the decisions she makes are inseparable.

She then urged them to follow the Holy Spirit, as she has, to remain optimistic and persevere.

"It's not that you say, 'Well, is this the right thing to do?' It's that you ask for guidance [and] are always aware that you have a higher power to which to appeal," Rice said, answering a question about how her faith impacted her role as secretary of state.

"The best part about being a person of faith is that I could be continually optimistic even in hard times," Rice added.

"I don't know how people who can't appeal to that Holy Spirit get through those hard times," she continued. "I know as [Abraham] Lincoln said, 'There are times when you have times where you have nowhere else to go than your knees.' That is very deeply engrained in me."

After addressing students, Rice spoke at the school's Leadership Banquet, where she applauded the University of Mobile for developing "servant leaders" for the future.

"Because the students here are taught to bring faith and reason together, they have a firm foundation not just of knowledge but of how to use that knowledge in a way that will advance the human condition," Rice said. "That is why the work that is done to make them servant leaders is also so important."

Rice made her appearance at the school Nov. 10. Most of the students' questions were delivered via text, Twitter or Facebook, and ranged from foreign relations to her childhood and the one word she'd like to be remembered for -- "perseverance."

Rice left public office in 2009 and is now a political science professor at Stanford University.

Life is a battle when we are walking in God's will for our life, for the enemy doesn't like it. But we must never forget that we have the victory - even though it sometimes may not seem like it!

WHEN BAD THINGS ARE GOOD

There is a man, I do know,
Who in God, desires to grow,
When something bad in life, does come along,
He's not now sad, for it makes him strong.

When satan tries to destroy his day,
He can now tell him to go away,
Has learned that, when doing God's will,
Satan will run you, through his mill.

He will accuse you of being blind,
And put evil thoughts in your mind,
A mighty battle now does take place,
Before you go on to win the race.

While satan's antics seem so real,
They're an illusion designed to steal
God's vision and purpose from our life,
Continually forcing us into strife.

The time to worry I have found,
Is when the devil is not around.
For when we proceed on our own way,
He takes time off to go and play.
He'll try his tricks on another one,
As our God, he tries to outgun.

So bad things are good, when we're in God's design.
Defeated satan - you have no power, us to decline!

A DAVID MUSING

Kathy and I are still doing well with our recovery from our house invasion. We still get a little tired at times, but both physically and emotionally we are as normal as we ever are!

The offender comes up for a Court hearing this week, so it will be interesting to see what the next step is in the legal process. The Police will oppose bail, if he asks for it, but whether their, and our, desires are taken heed of by the Judge, we will have to wait and see.

I am just so grateful that I am represented before the highest judge of all, by the greatest advocate of all, one Jesus! He was even willing to die in my defense! Thank you Lord! I now give my life to you in return for what you have done for me.

Until next week.......

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU BLESS GOD.

His servant and yours
