Matthew 5:23-24- So if you are presenting a sacrifice at the altar in the Temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, 24 leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God.
Mark 11:25-But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.”
God wants us to reconcile any broken relationships or forgive those that you hole unforgiveness with in your heart. There are two kinds of broken relationships that may be present in your relationships with others. In one case you may have sinned against another person. In that case Jesus commands you to go and be reconciled. Seek forgiveness and make restitution if necessary. The other kind of broken relationship is where you have been offended (or sinned against) by the other person. If you are withholding forgiveness, you are not allowing the love of Jesus to flow through your life to others. In this case, we need to forgive as Jesus forgave us. It could be that person does not even know they have offended you or sinned against you. Jesus tells us in Matthew 18 to go to that person and tell them so that relationship can be healed.
Ask God to help you fix any relationships you may have that need reconciliation or forgiveness.
Pray for those people today.
Pray for the next generation at the Cross. Pray that we can help them to know Jesus better. Pray that we can reach and encourage the next generation.
