MY TESTIMONY Eric R. Garinganao July 28, 2013

Before I had a personal relationship with God, I was so impatient, prideful and condemned those who sinned against me. Impatient, because even with a little misunderstanding with my friends, children and husband I would burst into anger. Prideful, because the phrase " I'm sorry" was not in my dictionary even if it was my fault. Prideful because I couldn't forgive easily.

I condemned my husband for giving me so much pain. I was upset, angry, messed up and depressed. I was physically, mentally and emotionally broken, and was full of negativity.

We had a bumpy marriage.


And I laid all the blame on my husband. Forgiveness was something I couldn't give to him. It became so bad that I just wanted to end our marriage.

And just as I was about to do so, God's mercy, grace and love poured down on us. When I came to know Jesus, I realized how amazing His grace was to us, how unfathomable was His love and mercy. And I realized, that who was I to not forgive, when I myself was forgiven? Who was I to not give second chances, when I myself was given a chance I did not even deserve? Who was I to destroy, when I myself was rebuilt?

Who was I to condemn, when I was given a Not Guilty verdict by a God who could just give, and equally just take away? He could have easily and justly condemned me and sent me away from Him, but He instead welcomed me back with open arms, and cast away all condemnation.

God's love is unconditional despite our flaws and imperfections. Now, our family is blessed with so much love and mutual respect. My husband is now an active member of the HLM Worship Team. My two kids serve the Lord at the YX Worship and Click Ministries. And the Lord has moved me to serve at the HLML'Fisher site. How sweeter can it get than this?

This time, the ride is smoother. I thank you Lord for giving us the opportunity to know and serve you. To God be the Glory!

MATTHEW Chapter18
The Kings Rebuke.
Why do some of Gods children have such a difficult time getting along with each other?
A POEM: To live above, with saints we love Will certainly be glory. To live below, with saints we know Well, thats another story!

With so much division and dissension among professing Christians these days, we desperately need what Matthew 18 has to teach. Jesus rebuked His disciples for their pride and desire for worldly greatness, and He taught them the three essentials for unity and harmony among Gods people.

Forgiveness (Matthew 18:21-35)


When we start living in an atmosphere of humility and honesty, we must take some risks and expect some dangers. Unless humility and honesty result in

FORGIVENESS, relationships
cannot be mended and strengthened.

Peter recognized the risks involved and asked Jesus how he should handle them in the future. But Peter made some serious mistakes. To begin with, he lacked humility himself. He was sure his brother would sin against him, but not he against his brother! Peters second mistake was in asking for limits and measures. Where there is love, there can be no LIMITS or dimensions (Ephesians 3:17-19).

Peter thought he was showing great faith and love when he offered to forgive at least seven times. After all, the rabbis taught that

THREE

times was sufficient.

Our Lords reply, Until seventy times

seven startled Peter.

(490 times) must have

Who could keep count for that many offenses?

Who could keep count for that many offenses? But that was exactly the point Jesus was making: Love keeps no record of wrongs (1 Corinthians 13:5, niv). By the time we have forgiven a brother that many times, we are in the habit of forgiving. But Jesus was not advising careless or shallow forgiveness.

Christian love is not blind (Philippians 1:9-10). The forgiveness Christ requires is on the basis of the instructions He gave in Matthew 18:15-20.

If a brother is guilty of a repeated sin, no doubt he would find strength and power to conquer that sin through the encouragement of his loving and forgiving brethren. If we condemn a brother, we bring out the worst in him.

But if we create an atmosphere of love and forgiveness, we can help God bring out the best in him.

The parable illustrates the power of forgiveness. It is important to note that this parable is not about salvation, for salvation is wholly of grace and is unconditionally given.
To make Gods forgiveness a temporary thing is to violate the very truth of Scripture (Romans 5:8; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:3-7).

The parable deals with forgiveness between

BROTHERS, not between


lost sinners and God. The emphasis in this chapter is on brother forgiving brother (Matthew 18:15, 21).
The main character in this parable went through three stages in his experience of forgiveness. wiersbee

Matthew 18:35 says that we are to forgive from our heart, or we will be turned over to the tormentors. To be turned over to the tormentors has been explained by theologians as everything including: physical ailments, mental illnesses, demons, addictions, and self-condemnation.
