Forgive and You Shall Be Forgiven


Mt. 6:7-15  "The Lord's Prayer
 
John the Baptist called people to repentence, and Jesus summarized his message simply, "forgive others as you would have them forgive you."  We will receive forgiveness of our sins only and when we forgive those who have wronged us, the same is in when I hear a confession--confess, admit your wrong, receive and give forgiveness.  Reread the story of John the Baptist preaching to the people at the river Jordan (Luke 3:1-20) Reflect deeply upon each phrase and each word--take your time.  and remember the words of Mother Teresa during this time:
 
Joy is prayer - Joy is strength - Joy is love -Joy is a net of love by which you can catchsouls. God loves a cheerful giver. She gives mostwho gives with joy. The best way to show ourgratitude to God and the people is to accepteverything with joy. A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love.Never let anything so fill you with sorrow as tomake you forget the joy of the Christ risen. - Mother Teresa - (Let the joy of the Lord be your strength thisday. Invite the Spirit to awaken awareness ofChrist's joy within you.)
