Ephesians 4 says, “Not only am I to be kind to everyone, but forgiving one another. To forgive is to cancel, to remit, to remove.” And God wants me to forgive people today. So, what I’ll tell you, what I have: people need to ask. They just need to ask me for forgiveness. That’s what God is saying. God said, “I’m to forgive you.” If you have aught in your heart, why even pray? The God’s ears are open to the prayer of the righteous. And if I have a bad spirit toward anybody in my life, I don’t want to live that way. I want to keep my heart clean before God.
God forbid, we have 14 grandchildren. If one of them is in the hospital today, I want to be able to get ahold of God immediately. And I want to be able to sit on their behalf and pray for them. I don’t want to have to call somebody and say, “Brother Ethan’s on the other side of the camera. Ethan, will you please forgive me?” I want to have that all settled. Nothing between my Lord and my Savior. And if there’s something between me and you, it’s because there’s something between me and God. If I keep this right, I’ll keep this right. Forgive people today. Have a great day.
