Nr. 244:

God commands us in his own words that we believers make up between us!

Matt. 5. 23 Therefore, when you carry your offering to the altar and there rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee, 24 leave your offering there in front of the altar and go first be reconciled thee to thy brother, and come and carry out your offering! 25 Make haste to be yielding to the opponent as long as you are with him on the road, lest the adversary deliver thee to the judge and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. 26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the last penny.

Jesus prayed even for those who killed him!

We know that Sara dismissed Hagar and Ishmael, when the boy was 14 years. But it says in 1 Mos.21.17-18: "God heard him crying. When angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said," What's wrong with you, Hagar? Be not afraid! For God has heard the boy crying as he lies. Stand up, take him up and hold him firmly by the hand! For I will make him a great nation. "

It pleased God that they would become friends again, although there was a schism between the present life, between Sarah and Hagar, the settlement creates not always agree but reconciliation!

We always want everything to be this easy kind. But there are brothers and sisters we once have known, and who for various reasons have come away from it. These speeches God that we should make up with, both for our own sake and neighbor.

Even Ishmael would be blessed. How much more will God bless us today as his legitimate child?

We read in Matthew that we should not come within its God before everything is settled with the brothers in the faith, as they also do not mind us, perhaps without reason? But it is knot in the thread, and we know it, it is our responsibility to make up, think about it!

The settlement - not always agree

1. John. b 1 6 If we say we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and Jesus Christ his Son blood cleanses us from all sin.

Failure to do with each other is to walk in darkness, making out with each other has a walk in the light. And we have fellowship. The point is not that we always agree, but that everything is up to the light and not hidden or we go there to scary and against each other. This is of utmost importance.

Even those who do not live right are entitled to have the opportunity to hear the truth, and have the opportunity to repent. God is always in search to find and have solutions for us. We read about this several places in the word of God, among others. a:

Matt. 18. 15 But if your brother sins against you, then go and rebuke him privately! He belongs to you, then you have won your brother, 16 but he will not listen, then take yet one or two with you, that every word may be established by two or three witnesses words. 17 But he did not hear them, tell it to the church! But he hears not the church, let him be to thee as a heathen and a tax collector.

There is a brother who lives in sin and that will have the opportunity to repent, he \ she does not then you will not even eat with the person if he \ she confesses the name of Jesus but live in sin, for instance in January Aage Torp, Jan Hanvold and many others! They live in sin to death and one should not even ask for, but stay far away.

But when it came knot in the thread between spiritual brothers and sisters, we make up, my experience is that this is very important. Going with a score to settle between some, in fact for several years is really a pity. Get it done, even if one disagrees, and may not agree, so to speak out and then pray together. The doctors and do wonders. Take this seriously, this is one of the most important and beautiful in life, that makes up between each other. I have experienced it several times that if one does not settle then rub it on his conscience and psyche, and it makes the community with God and with almost prevented.

1. John. 3. 19 And this shall we know that we are of the truth, and then we set our hearts before him 20 for if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart and knows all things. 21 Beloved if our heart condemn us, we have confidence before God, 22 and whatever we ask we receive of him, because we keep His commandments and do what is pleasing in his sight. 23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe in His Son Jesus Christ and love one another as he commanded us. 24 And he that keepeth his commandments abideth in him and he in him: and hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit he gave us.

Note that the heart can condemn us, even if God does not. It is this that we must take into account, therefore, makes up between your siblings, especially those that you have had a close and intimate relationship with, do not overlook this. It will cost you more than you know of confidence, joy, and ultimately this can lead you into an apostasy!

A personal testimony!

in youth, I was gloriously saved and there were also two others who were carnal siblings that I got very good contact. We were together every day for several years, but then there came a manipulator that separated us from each other. It took several years without contact, but after a few years so we ask for forgiveness and I felt that this had much more meaning than I thought. If we have not had as much contact afterwards, so to ask for forgiveness, it is huge, quite important. Although this is back in time, so it tells me that a settlement and reconciliation are more important than we often think, when God has commanded this in his own words. It's not necessarily that one looks the same on everything, even afterwards, but being able to talk openly about everything even when one looks at things differently. Much of this comes from our immaturity and that we are not aware that Satan creates conflict but reconciliation and restoration, it is recommended!

Matt. 5. 12 forgive us our trespasses as we forgive our debtors.
Isaiah 2.4, "They shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, and no longer learn to wage war "is about the coming 1000 year kingdom, but in which the kingdom of God will break forth, there is reconciliation, openness and tolerance. Just think, tolerate other opinions, it is my experience that Christians are bad shit, but they are born again then? I wonder many times, but God is good!

Until my commentaries Ephesians 4 1. So I beseech you, I am the prisoner of the Lord's sake, that you live a life that is worthy of the calling you have received.
Once we have accepted Jesus as savior, it is required that he is Lord. We should live a life that is worthy of the high calling we are called to, it's a heavenly calling.
2 Be humble, do not take you to the right, stretch you far as you bear with one another in love.
It's like we find Bergprekens teaching of much of what Paul is saying here. Bergprekens message was not only Jews but also to us Gentiles.
Matt 7, 12 {THE GOLDEN RULE} But it will help to understand the message to more than familiar with Jewish beliefs and way of thinking.
All you would have others do to you, you also do to them. For this is the law and the prophets in one sum.
3 careful to preserve the unity of the Spirit, in the peace that binds together:
Christians are one in him - like the branches on the vine. Thus you and I seek to preserve this device in an atmosphere that binds together. The evil is out to create conflict and division. Our sinful nature will easily put up fences. The ufreden we sometimes can feel inside of us, get us to bring about war between Christian brothers and sisters. "Blessed are the peacemakers," Jesus said. And Paul reminds us that we should seek to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. We need not be equal. God has created us different, and we may have different opinions on public issues. The real fruit of the device only created when we grow closer to Jesus.
