I will enable you to love and forgive. I will bring reconciliation as you bring your heart to Me. I only ask “Are you willing?”. Remember what My forgiveness cost Me, as you are struggling to surrender your rights; especially after you have been trampled. But do this, in remembrance of Me. For My body was broken and My blood poured out for you. You have been called to this fellowship with Me as you share in My sufferings. You have been called to the breaking of bread and the communion with My Spirit! This is your participation in My body, in order that you may share in My glory.  Do not harden your heart and allow the deceitfulness of sin to capture you. Be quick to forgive so that no bitter root will grow in your heart. Let My love rule in your heart.

Proverbs 28:14 Happy is the one who is always reverent, but one who hardens his heart falls into trouble.

Matthew 5:44-45 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.

1 Peter 4:1 Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin.

1 Peter 4:8  Above all, maintain an intense love for each other, since love covers a multitude of sins.

1 Peter 4:13 Instead, rejoice as you share in the sufferings of the Messiah, so that you may also rejoice with great joy at the revelation of His glory.

1 Peter 4:19 So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
