HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE
WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES; THE CHASTISEMENT
FOR OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM, AND BY HIS STRIPES
WE ARE HEALED.  ( ISAIAH 53:5 *NKJV )

Dear Friend,
Indeed we are healed of our transgressions, and iniquities
through the forgiveness of our sins. For it is written; 
HE HAS
DELIVERED US FROM THE POWER OF DARKNESS AND
CONVEYED US INTO THE KINGDOM OF THE SON OF HIS
LOVE, IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS
BLOOD, THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.
( COLOSSIANS 1:13-14 )

When we think about how much forgiveness God shows
toward mankind, let us remember the words of our Savior
Jesus Christ, as he hung on the cross, 
“FATHER, FORGIVE
THEM, FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY DO.”
  
So
let those words be an example for you when you find yourself
angry with another!    
( LUKE 23:34 )

After all it is also written; IF YOU FORGIVE MEN THEIR
TRESPASSES, YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER WILL ALSO
FORGIVE YOU.  BUT IF YOU DO NOT FORGIVE MEN
THEIR TRESPASSES, NEITHER WILL YOUR FATHER
FORGIVE YOUR TRESPASSES.  ( MATTHEW 6:14-15 )

So Friend, if you have been angered by another, why
not try to forgive them instead of holding a grudge.  After all
your heart and mind will be at peace when you do!   Amen.

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
