Just wondering how you did last week with the process of “letting go” of your need to know the future. Please note, that I said, the process. John Wesley preached that in our lives we come to a moment of decision in which we trust the work of Jesus on the cross for our salvation and, at that moment, we are restored to a right relationship with God which he termed justifying grace. “Our sins are forgiven and God remembers them no more” (Hebrews 8:12). Thus begins the process of sanctification—meaning being made perfect. It might make your heart feel better to know that not one of us will complete this life journey without detours and bumps in the road, so don’t be too hard on yourself if you don’t have all these steps to being spiritually healthy under your belt.
This week’s message is the 2nd part of a series entitled “What is means to be a spiritually healthy person.”
Do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Luke 6:27b-28
Can you think of a person in your life who has mistreated you? Of course you can! Now I want you to think of three terrific things about that person. Take it a step further if you can and write them a note about your insights. You will be amazed at the healing that will take place in your heart. Promise! Linda
