the Time - Part 4
FAIR SALARIES Matthew
19:27-20:16 Print this Bible Study
** Last week we learned the importance of becoming the "Forgiving
Saint" that the Lord redeemed us to be. Did you find yourself
to be more aware of your calling to forgive and at the same time where
resistant to all forms of bitterness that would give rise to unforgiveness?
(cf. Hebrews 12:15)
Absolutely - As we encounter the lost individuals around us, it becomes
abundantly clear how much forgiveness is needed in this world. The Lord
continues to lay upon my heart the need to forgive, even as much as
I have been forgiven!
** In Part 3 of "Redeeming the Time", we saw what we
must avoid at all cost if we hope to redeem our time here on earth. Do
you recall what that was?
Failing to forgive others, especially in the light of how much we
ourselves have been forgiven!
** Besides unforgiveness, there is another enemy of the Body of Christ.
Another characteristic, that left
unchecked can cause division and dishonor to the name of Jesus Christ.
To learn what this is, please join
me again in Matthew's gospel, this time in chapter 19 and verse 27. We
will be reading the passage that
concludes in chapter 20, verse 16 to hear what Jesus has to say about
the equality of believers in His
parable that discusses "Fair Salaries".
