Show Notes: Asking For Forgiveness

The Bible is filled with verses about the tongue!

James 3:8 – But no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless, evil, full of deadly poison.

Matthew 12:36-37: I tell you on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words will you be justified, and by your words, you will be condemned.”

  1. If we pray and really take a few minutes with God and really think about that verse in Matthew – we will give account for every careless word. Ouch!
  2. How are we expected to tame our tongue?
  3. Have you asked for forgiveness? It is never easy.

When we mess up it is time to get on our needs and pray. It is also time to ask those you’ve hurt to forgive you.

Asking for Forgiveness

The Bible says …

The word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword – Hebrews 4:12

The difference between: “I’m sorry.”, or “Please forgive me?”

  1.  I’m sorry you are basically keeping all the power or intent in your corner. You are apologizing but it really is one-sided – what if the person you say you are sorry to does not forgive you or release you from that hurt?
  2. “Please forgive me,” you are asking the person to release you from the hurt – to join you in the process of repairing the relationship and bringing healing to you both.
  3. Asking for forgiveness can set you free, is a sign of humility, and allows the Lord to be Lord of your life.

Asking for Forgiveness — a call to action:

Pick up the phone, write a letter, an email or text message someone today. Ask for forgiveness and take charge of your life for Christ.

God bless and I pray that the Lord blesses you today and allows you to be set free!
