This is the subject of my latest email called "Throwing yourself in jail." Its all about the subject of forgiveness because when we are unable to forgive we are unwittingly making ourselves miserable. But when we forgive we are certainly letting the offender off the hook, but we are also letting go of our misery too. Its by far the best thing for us to do because not only does God ask us to do it, but we will be happier for obeying.
Yesterday was a pretty busy day and so I wasn't able to get on the internet, but the sons retreat down at the beach concluded in spectacular style and last night we started the Apostolic Summit conference. I really feel that I cannot possibly hope to explain to you what God is saying here and how clear and important and life changing it is. It would be a bit like trying to drink all the water in a bath tub in one go.......I just couldn't do it.
I attended all day today (Saturday) and have taken copious notes, but still feel overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of information. God is working in the earth in these days doing a new thing restoring apostles and prophets and changing christians to be like the early church. Its a huge subject........may I suggest you buy the tapes or cds from the conference.
The Carnival came to Rockhampton this week and I took the kids along and we had a blast. Its been maybe 8 years since I've been to the show and so it was nice to enjoy it again. The kids had a turn on the giant slide, the jumping castles, they had rides on trains, cars, horses and the ferris wheel. (and I went on that too).
Jesus did not come to earth to start a big religious organization/s. He came to start a family and make us all friends with God. He didn't start a Bible College to train his disciples but did it through living together in normal life. Read about it here.
