The Power of An Apology - Part 2
October 31, 2018

This month we're talking about harnessing the Power of an Apology. If you missed the video from last session, you can go here to check it out.

In Jesus’ first public sermon recorded in Matthew 5 there is a hidden gem that might be easily missed. It is nestled between two scandalous statements about murder and lawsuits.

In Matthew 5: 23-24 Jesus said that if you come to worship to leave an offering and are reminded of a conflict against a friend, go seek reconciliation with urgency. Then return to the altar and offer the gift of worship.

Challenge yourself to think about how you could live the truth of that Scripture today in your home.

Consider this:

Forgiveness Matters - Jesus prioritized forgiveness and reconciliation in this passage. It is essential to healthy relationships and families.

Don’t Wait - There is a sense of urgency in this passage. Jesus placed importance on pursuing reconciliation quickly.

Forgiveness Unleashes Worship - After reconciliation takes place there is an invitation to return to worship God in freedom.

Here are some reflection questions:

  • Is there conflict in your home that you are concerned about right now?
  • Are you seeking reconciliation with urgency?
  • Are you prioritizing forgiveness in your relationships?
  • Would your teenager say that your home is a place of grace?

Let Jesus’ words inspire you today to experience peace in your home and pursue reconciliation in your family.

With blessings,
