The Other “F” Word

7 keys to life

There are few more vile words in the English language than the “F” word. No need to expound on its many manifestations. Suffice it to say that it is ungodly, immoral, disrespectful, hurtful, profane, and ignorant. This was the kind of thing the Bible warns us to avoid.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.” Ephesians 5:8-12

THE OTHER “F” WORD – While it is human nature to strike out or strike back at others, Jesus has a better way: FORGIVENESS is the best antidote to offense, anger, and even hatred. We are quite familiar with “70 X 7,” but do we actually practice it?

Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. Matthew 18:21-22

The vile “F” word brings only separation, but forgiveness brings healing. Our modern profane and rebellious culture cannot be healed by one side winning, but through forgiveness. This is not possible in the natural man, but only through Jesus and our Judeo/Christian heritage.

God’s forgiveness does not ignore sin, but rather faces and acknowledges it. Repentance means more than saying: “I’m sorry,” but goes a step further to say: “I was wrong!” That is where we find healing and forgiveness.

As we pray for our nation, let us remember this great principle and pray fervently for forgiveness.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Yehovah, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 33:12

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for our nation.

(Why  do I use God’s literal covenant Name: Yehovah? Here is a link to the explanation  in my book: The Hebrew God Who Has No Name.) and here is a link to a great visualfrom my friend Keith Johnson.
