Set FREE From Hurtful Things Said To Us!



 


Whenever we connect an event from today to something harsh someone once said..that person's line becomes a label. The label becomes a lie. And the lie becomes a liability in how we think about ourselves and interact in every future relationship.
--- From the book Uninvited


HOW DO WE MOVE PAST HURTFUL THINGS OTHERS HAVE SAID OR DONE?  

 

We have to remember that this world is NOT our home!

"But YOU ARE a CHOSEN race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a special people for GOD'S OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies, the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections of Him who CALLED you OUT OF DARKNESS AND INTO HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT."  1 Peter 2:9

"For we are His workmanship His own master work, a work of art, created in Christ Jesus reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used for good works, which God prepared for us beforehand taking paths which He set, so that we would walk in them living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us."  Ephesians 2:10

"Do not love the world of sin that opposes God and His precepts, nor the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  The world is passing away, and with it its lusts the shameful pursuits and ungodly longings; but the one who does the will of God and carries out His purposes lives forever."  1 John 2:15 & 17


WE MUST BE WILLING TO:

 


"Bear graciously with one another, and willingly forgiving each other if one has a cause for complaint against another; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so should you forgive."  Col 3:13

"Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor perpetual animosity, resentment, strife, fault-finding and slander be put away from you, along with every kind of malice all spitefulness, verbal abuse, malevolence.  BE KIND and HELPFUL to one and TENDER-HEARTED, COMPASSIONATE, UNDERSTANDING, FORGIVING ONE ANOTHER, just as Christ forgave YOU". Ephesians 4:31-32

"Forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead". Phil 3:13


Oh how He loves us!  Once we've asked Jesus to be the Lord of our life, repented, and turned away from our former way of living...we are His FOREVER!
