Love does not take into account a wrong endured. AMP
Love keeps no record of wrongs. NIV
Love doesn’t keep score of the sins of others. MSSG
Really? This is probably the number one issue I find in captives and prisoners (most people in and outside the church).
A captive is someone who is imprisoned by the sins of another.
A prisoner is someone who is imprisoned for their sins.
Each is keeping a score—a record of wrongs.
We have been forgiven. We have been given and honored to receive the Gospel, the Good News, from the battlefield!
Our Charter is a ministry of reconciliation, and it begins with us!
I beg you to no longer allow what you have done or what others have done unto you to be greater than what Jesus Christ has done for you.
His love keeps no record of wrongs, and His love will set you free.
Who do you need to let go of to free them and yourself?
How would your life and the lives of others be transformed through forgiveness?
Lord, we are tired of lengthening the chains that bind us. In Your mercy, show us where we are, record keeping the wrongs in our lives, and by Your Grace, break the chains of unforgiveness so that we may run free and release the captives and prisoners You have ordained to rebuild our community! Amen
