It is a very sad world when people rejoice in the killing, murder,assassination of another human being no matter how evil they have been and people celebrate and powers that be pose for photo opportunities.I direct your thoughts if you are a Christian or seeking God's will for your life to read my post on this blog on the cross of Christ.The only justice is found through the cross of Christ. The only real love is found in Him.The only real peace that we can know personally is in knowing and loving our Lord God and receiving forgiveness as we forgive others.
We are only by circumstances not reviled as Osama Bin Laden was. Not because of our own cleverness or self righteousnous. Jesus endured our sin and became sin for us on the cross just as much He did for Osama and all evil people. I quote from a little book by R. G. Weeks called "What about forgiveness?"
" love and forgiveness go hand in hand.Real Love forgives and real forgiveness loves."
It is true that unforgiveness is the cause of much heartache and hurting ,divisions and schisms in the Church, in homes,marriage, fellowships and assemblies. It is the cause of many a mental breakdown. The cause of much backsliding for both the unforgiving party and the unforgiven.
The world is not attracted by the Gospel we preach; it is not impressed when it looks upon the attitude of so many Christians who do not even forgive one another! Think of this in all honesty dear brethren in Christ.
" Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger,and clamour and evil speaking, be put away from you with all malice, and be ye kind one to another even as God for Christ's sake has forgiven you." Galatians 4:30-32
