Restoration Through Forgiveness – Part One

The challenge of forgiveness is perhaps one of the hardest things for believers in Christ and non-believers alike to come to terms with. It doesn’t seem to matter whether the offence has been great or small, real or perceived; all of us, throughout many occasions in our lives will come face-to-face with the choice as to whether or not we will forgive. The challenge with all forgiveness is in making the right start. The key to forgiveness is in choosing the right way over the wrong way. Once we have begun on that journey, it makes it a lot easier to follow through. Forgiveness must come from our hearts.

A Good King

A Good King

With the coming of a new King comes a new reign and the advent of a new Kingdom. Jesus Christ has rulership over the whole earth whether we like it or not. When we submit to His rule (instead of kicking against the goads – see Acts chapter 9) everything changes!

Keep Yourself From Mixture

Keep Yourself From Mixture

When the Apostle Paul wrote or preached, by the Spirit of grace, he allowed no room for mixture. This meant he was not just mindful of the words he spoke or tone of voice that he used, but that the heart and intent behind his message was of the Lord. Actions and attitudes go together as one.

If you would like to have a relationship with God through accepting His Son Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, please pray the prayer below.

Dear Heavenly Father. Thank You for sending Your Son Jesus to die on the cross for my sins. I am sorry for the sins I have committed and I ask You to forgive me. I now turn away from all the things that I know to be wrong and I receive Your Holy Spirit and Your gift of eternal life. Thank You for this free gift of Salvation and eternal life. Help me to come to know and experience Your love for me more and more, and to now share the love You have given me with others. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

We would love to hear from you: If you have prayed this prayer for the first time, or have recommitted your life to Christ today I would love to hear from you to encourage you in your new walk with Christ. You can send me an email by clicking 'Get in Touch' on the yellow bar at the bottom of the Home or Articles pages.

What next: Once we have started our relationship with Christ – it is important that we continue to grow in our understanding of Him, and experience His love for us on a regular basis. God does this for us as we read the Bible, which I encourage you to do on a regular basis, asking the Holy Spirit to help you understand it and make it “come alive” to you in a very personal way. May I encourage you to do this every day, and to actively pursue those things that God reveals to you. We also need to be spending time with other like-minded Christians on a regular basis, who are also growing in their relationship with God. We gain encouragement from being with other growing believers. Ask God to lead you to a Bible-believing church (or Bible-believing Christian group) that will encourage your relationship with Christ and help to meet your needs. Ask Him, and trust that He will guide you to the place of fellowship that is right for you.

May God both work in you and through you, those things that He desires, as you continue to submit your life to Him each day.
