• “In case any are puzzled by the different translations from which I draw strength and help and delight, it is like this: In studying any object with the microscope we use different lenses and turn the mirror in various ways; each change brings out some new wonder and beauty. So it is for those who are not Greek or Hebrew scholars, and who use the work of scholars to open the meaning of the exhaustible Word–the Bible is richer than any single version can fully show.” – Amy Carmichael

How Have You Responded? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/09/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: My friend Marcia experienced a lot of hurt growing up with an alcoholic father. When God changed her life, she realized she had sinned in response to her father’s bad choices.

“I at that point wrote a letter to my father and sent it to him asking his forgiveness for all that I had done against him. So when I finally got a hold of him, I said, ‘Dad, I need to know if you got that letter I sent you.’

“And he said, ‘Yes, Marcia. I got the letter, and I need to ask your forgiveness. You’re not the one that needs to be asking me for forgiveness.’

“But I said, ‘Dad, I need to know that you forgive me for what I’ve done against you.’

“He said, ‘Yes, I’ve forgiven you.’ And I said, ‘Daddy, I’ve already forgiven you. And God will forgive you to if you allow Him.’”

Nancy: In a short time Marcia saw the fruit of her forgiveness.

“He told me that he had decided to make a change in his life and turn his life over to Christ.”

Nancy: Do you need to ask for someone’s forgiveness? God may do amazing things through the process.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
