The Double-Edged Sword of Forgiveness

Morning Thought: Did you know forgiveness is a weapon against darkness? The double-edged sword of forgiveness cuts to pieces the evil one’s attacks. First, seek personal forgiveness from God through repentance. Before thinking about other people’s debts to you, realise you have deeply hurt God and others. Then from this place of humility, forgive those who’ve sinned against you. Put the emphasis on your own need for forgiveness and forgiving others will come naturally. “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” (Matthew 6:12, NIV).

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from eight to twenty-one. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (https://www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (https://www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
