Brothers and Sisters in Christ,  


            God is on mission! He is, in Christ, reconciling the world to himself (2 Cor. 5:19). This past Tuesday Night, in Alpha, we were reminded of Christ’s work in his death on the cross to bring us back to God. God is pursuing people, even identifying with the poor, so that they can have a life of righteousness and justice. We each have a part to play in the work that God is doing – telling others about him, and showing what God is like as we do the right things. 

            One part of the conversation we had following the video in Alpha was to talk about if it is possible to forgive and forget. We may have experienced significant tragedy or trauma. If that’s true of you, seek professional counseling! It’s one way that God has ordained to bring about restoration. For others who have been harmed and are just trying to move on, it might not be possible to forget. But it is possible for us to choose not to remember. After all, this is what God does for us! God says “I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.” (cf. Jer. 31:34; Heb. 8:12; Heb. 10:17). God does this for us through the work of Christ. Have you accepted his forgiveness so that you can extend it to others?
