Sermons from March 2016
No one can love us or hurt us like those who are closest to us. You only have two choices when it comes to dealing with hurt: It will either be the bondage of bitterness or the freedom of forgiveness. Not forgiving is more costly than forgiving. The price of unforgiveness is much higher than forgiveness. Bitterness is natural but forgiveness is supernatural.
Christianity gives us a meaning in life that the worst suffering in this world can’t take and the greatest success in this world can’t give.
When we enter relationships with the illusion that people are normal, we set ourselves up for disillusionment. People are normal until you get to know them. Everybody is somebody�s difficult person. If we respond unwisely, we can make difficult people more difficult.
Healthy people create healthy relationships. There has never been a healthy relationship without healthy communication. There has never been an unhealthy relationship that didn�t get that way in part because of unhealthy communication.
