FORGIVENESS

ROSS KAELLNER

Frustration is a fact of life and it comes in many forms for all of us. For Ross Kaellner it came in the form of a scam artist named Andy who was supposed to move all his possessions to Boston for a great price. Only problem is that his family’s stuff never made it to Boston. Filled with anger and bitterness Ross turned it over to God after reading Ephesians 4:31-32, which says that we should Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.

Who in your life fills you with frustration, just by hearing their name? Before you let your hatred and anger prevail, read over this passage in Ephesians again, and ask God for the strength to forgive someone in your life that has offended you. If God has it in his heart to forgive you, don’t you think you could forgive others? Don’t wait; there is joy and peace to be found when we forgive as Christ calls us to forgive!

QUESTION 1. Who is frustrating you these days? Maybe it’s someone who embarrassed you time and time again at school. Or a friend that spread lies about what you did or did not do. Maybe it’s someone you live with. When you mouths open up in the direction of each other – it’s like a countdown towards the beginning of World War III. Who is it that frustrates you?
QUESTION 2. What does Paul mean when he says that we should forgive one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven us?
CHALLENGE: We challenge you to forgive, as Christ calls all of us to forgive. Don’t wait and be free today from the anger and pain today!
