Let’s Burn That List of Personal Grudges. Sally has personal grudges against several people and legitimately too, but not spiritually justified. She has been jilted so many times that she has a diary of offenders and violators of her emotions and body! From time to time, she would go over that list and invoke God’s judgment on her offenders.
The Johnsons have hurt each other over the years and they are unable to move on as husband and wife, devoid of strife and acrimony.
Let’s get into the scripture!
2Co 2:10 (MSG) So if you forgive him, I forgive him. Don’t think I’m carrying around a list of personal grudges. The fact is that I’m joining in with your forgiveness, as Christ is with us, guiding us.
Here was Apostle Paul telling the people under his purview that he doesn’t carry around a list of personal grudges.
Was he saying nobody offended him? No. In fact, he has been offended so much that he could build a list!
Well, you have to burn that list! Let’s Burn That List of Personal Grudges
You hold a list, you don’t carry it! But he used the words “carrying around a list” because the list is heavy!
Eh, you don’t need such a heavy load in the new year! Burn the list!
Why should you burn the list? Let me show you in the next verse.
2Co 2:11 (MSG) After all, we don’t want to unwittingly give Satan an opening for yet more mischief—we’re not oblivious to his sly ways!
A list of personal bridges will give the devil “an opening!” Let’s Burn That List of Personal Grudges
May you not open the door for the devil in Jesus’ name!
The Amplified version says:
2Co 2:11 (AMPC) To keep Satan from getting the advantage over us…
Check more translations:
2Co 2:11 (BBE) So that Satan may not get the better of us…
2Co 2:11 (ERV) I did this so that Satan would not win anything from us…
2Co 2:11 (GNB) in order to keep Satan from getting the upper hand over us…
2Co 2:11 (GW) I don’t want Satan to outwit us…
2Co 2:11 (TPT) so that we would not be exploited by the adversary…
These are the reason why you burn the list!
Don’t “carry” that list into the new year! Let’s Burn That List of Personal Grudges
God bless and honour you as you hearken to these words and let go of every offence!
Have a great day!
