DAILY WORDS OF HOPE
BY PCG, HOPE CONGREGATION–SAK. EST
If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. Matthew 18:15
THEME: REACH OUT
WORDS OF HOPE:
A Catholic nun spoke at a community ecumenical service held at a Methodist church. She mentioned some of the things that have separated Christians for all these years and offered her opinion about what keeps us from getting together. The nun said that three of the most difficult things for someone to say to another are “I was wrong”, “I am sorry”, “I love you.”
She pointed out that each of these three statements touches a sensitive nerve, not only in the personal circle of family and friends but in ecumenical relations as well.
Christians of all kinds have problems saying these things to one another. But when such admissions and feelings are expressed they have power to bring healing to broken relationships in the church, that of the community and the nation. Jesus’ words chart a course to our reconciliation in him. Try all you con to gain your brother or sister.
· Thank you lord for the spirit of reaching out.
· Lord may we live in unity.
· Lord we thank you for the community of churches.
Lord when there is a problem between me and others, help me say the right things and with the right intentions. Amen🙏🏽
