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.”
( LUKE 23:34 )

So let those words be an example for you when you find
yourself angry with another!   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
