Forgive me


What I by reason declare mysterious is often those things God has yet to reveal in my heart. My knowledge of Jesus as Christ was not discerned in my mind but revealed to my heart. I then attempted to assign reason to that knowledge and strived to force completion to a work in progress by logical conclusion based on an, at least partially, assumed set of rules. When my conclusion satisfied my current experience I then foolishly declared my understanding full and closed my heart to any further revelation. To insure my ignorance I protected my heart from any further truth with my proud closed mind then condemned all and any who might indicate to me my folly. I called my own brother a fool. Forgive me brother for I am the fool. My logic and suspicion of truth is not scripture nor is it that knowledge by revelation we both need. Forgive me dear God for closing my ears and rejecting your voice. Open my mind once more that the writing of your word on my heart might continue.

This sounds like a fortune cookie but it's true: you have the potential to affect many Christians in a positive and profound way. Your lucky numbers are 7, 7, and 7.

Amazing...I like that insight. I empathize and understand completely, as I have likewise felt the same, and done the same.

I did want to apologize and affirm that you have not been no help (the use of a double negative was intentional to say you have been help). I have not addressed each and every issue that has been given as it is very difficult to do so. I have attempted to understand this issue and it is proving too much. I do like the help that is being given, but I am attempting to formulate my response so as to address all points given.

I hope you will 'forgive me'...for not showing the attention you deserve...

awaiting the hope,
Adam

I concur with Neal - beautiful - may your eyes be opened, your heart unfurled, your spirit unleashed, your soul unbound, and your mind and will pliant before the living God.

Blessings & Peace,
Hugo

I feel so unworthy of my association with each of you and I pray that one day I could be even a tenth the blessing to you all that you are all to me. Thank you my brothers.

Brotherly love gives us the most incredible perspectives. As I look at each comment here I see in each ten times what you’ve said to me. Neal has the most beautiful blog filled with his visions for the church. Pecheur it seems though were often apart now we’ve still both been there. Matt your impact on my life and me is nothing less than profound and I am convinced on so many others as well. Adam I deserve nothing from you yet you obligate yourself to such a foolish old man. I need your forgiveness. Hugo I know so many of our prayers for one another have already been answered in so many ways. Thank you so much for this one. Kris you have absolutely no reason to covet me in any way. Your agreeable nature is indicative of the greatest humility.
