Tender Hearts, forgiveness and kindness....Refreshing.

>> Thursday, June 4, 2009

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. (Ephesians 4:32 KJV)
a tender heart is priceless to God, forgiving one another is freedom for the soul and being kind is like the cherry on top. There are some rare cases that we may not be able to exchange the sentiments of truth because of the other parties rebellion, yet if we have done all we can to be accountable for ourselves then we just continue in kindness.
kindness is demonstrated by being graceful towards others
tender heart is by allowing yourself to be in anothers shoes and offering mercy and the benefit of the doubt
forgiving is trusting God with the consequences for they know not what they do. It is easy to have a forgiving heart when our hearts are driven with truth and not our emotions or feelings.
even as Christ has forgiven us. Scriptures tell us great peace have they which love thy law and nothing shall offend thee. If it seems to be a habitual thing go to the brother and try to work it out gving them the benefit of doubt out of kindness, a tender and forgiving heart. IF it gets you no where you were obedient and will be blessed for your response.If you talk and work things out you've won an brother.
Dont allow yourself to get caught up in talking about others. Gossip, backbiting and jealous are not of God they are direct hits of the enemy to cause division and destruction. They certainly do not emulate be ye kind one to another...... stay away from those who justify division with hurt feelings. The scriptures clearly tell us how to deal with our circumstances.
Dont stew over emotions and feelings, sort out facts and if you find yourself critical about alot of things with alot of critizism and a hard heart for truth ask the Good Lord to tenderize your heart bring you to a place of kindness and mercy. Most often when we have alot to complain about the problem isnt others it is us. Most of us learn that the hard way unfortunately. Being negative doesnt bring glory to God nor edify the hearer.
God is in control, if we spent 1/3 of the time working on ourselves rather than worrying about others, and edifying others, loving and going out of our way for others what a better world we'd live in. Are we part of the solution or the problem? Where is the condition of our hearts this very moment? Identify your position, put on the armor and claim victory in Jesus.How do we live this verse out? TAking personal time with God, alone time and in the word reading and praying that God would use His living Words to transform our hearts. If we are not seeking Him daily, we will find ourselves struggling to maintain. Heb 11:6b says that He is a rewarder to those who diligent seek Him. Does it say he is a rewarder to those who do not seek Him?Let us humble ourselves in the sight of God.....
May we all seek to be obedient to scriptures to bless others and show that God is real and working in our lives!!!!
