• “Jesus, who so often says “Whoever loves Me…” “Do you love Me?” is concerned about our LOVE! He is concerned about a special kind of love…He who has loved us so much wants to possess us completely, with everything we are and have. Jesus gave Himself wholly and completely for us. Now His love is yearning for us to surrender ourselves and everything that we are to Him, so that He can really be our “first love” – Basilea Schlink

Responsible by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/06/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: One of the first steps toward choosing forgiveness is to clear your conscience toward those who have wronged you. How have you responded to them? Have you blessed them?

“Who’d your dad have with him this weekend?”

Nancy: Have you loved them?

“She’s not my favorite person.”

Nancy: Have you prayed for them?

“I wish he’d just die.”

You’re not responsible for how others have hurt you. But you are responsible for how you’ve responded. Jesus said it this way: “First take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”

Do you want to find freedom from hurt and bitterness? Ask God to give you His love toward those who’ve sinned against you. Clear your conscience with them, and then choose to forgive.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
