Discussion for Ephesians 4

  • Wayne
    Ivy, Acts 3:19, after repentance our sins are blotted out in the sight of God. Not to be remembered. Paul writes that he forgot those that were behind and was pressing on to the mark of the prize of the high calling of God.
  • Doreen
    - we are One Body, One Spirit, same Essence, Ability and Power as Christ. Amen.
  • Bja
    9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
  • Lucinda Palestrant
    Kim, Ephesians 4 3:6 gives us the context; one spirit, one body of Christ (his church) is in unity, with a high calling of hope and peace. We are to be in unity of God's law. Contending for the faith.

    Hello Ivy, you wrote that sometimes in order to forgive, we have to forgive ourselves too. Can you give me the scripture that tells us this is true? Because I just read Ephesians 4, I searched this site for the word "forgive" and "forgiveness" I do not see where God commands or even suggests to us to forgive ourselves. We are commanded to repent of our sins. I am trying to help you with love.
  • Ivy
    Showing forgiveness sometimes is being kind to those who hurt you. Showing that you love them and your over it no matter what however sometimes in order to forgive sometimes we have to forgive ourselves to. God wants us to forgive not just others but ourselves for the mistakes God is still working on us.
