1. I’m working through Mt. 6 right now and pondering the beauty of the forgiveness equation that is there. And also reading in Hebrews about Jesus’ intercession for us. It’s beautiful to be reminded that part of Jesus’ intercessory work must be in praying that we will follow His instruction to let go of the wrongs and live in the freedom of forgiveness. Thanks for connecting these dots for me this morning!

  2. There are so many thoughts here! But, yes, it is a great time to think about forgiveness and what Jesus went through for us. Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. Rachel what a pleasure to finally visit your site! I have seen you in several link ups. In fact I was all set to read your post but ended up taking my mother to see the movie Rise. What a beautiful movie. I love what you are doing here on your site. I am definitely going to subscribe for your Ebook. I may never make it to the Holy land so i look forward to seeing it through yours lens. I am always blessed by another Christian bloggers story as everyone is unique in their own special way and God wants us to share it. I am thankful for my Savior and the love that he bestows on me each day. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. I am definitely looking forward to returning here and being inspired once again.

      Horace, I’m honored to have you visit. And I’m so glad you’re signing up for the Holy Land ebook. I hope it enlightens, encourages and educates you as you hope to do for others. I just popped over to your site and read your story of suffering but how God beautifully touched your heart and now you are living for him. And I love the photo of the lamb.

  4. Great post! Love your Read Reflect Respond…I, too, wrote my reflections following a 12-day journey to the Holy Land as one of 850 ladies who traveled for the filming of Beth Moore’s Bible study, Jesus, the One and Only…I will never be the same again…many blessings to you ❤️

  5. Forgiveness truly is something that must be practiced. If only we could get the hang of it once and for all!

      Yes, if only we could on an individual basis and nations forgiving and finding reconciliation. Then the world would be a more peaceful place.

  6. You’ve offered a lot of food for thought here. Thank you for this insightful post. I’d never thought about the idea, that Jesus had to forgive in order to remain sinless. Those final words of his, on the cross, never fail to make me feel complete awe and gratitude.
    Thank you for linking with Grace and Truth last Friday. I would love to feature this post, for Grace and Truth, this Friday.
