‘Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me so I am sending you.’ And with that Jesus breathed on them and said, ‘receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.’ John 20: 21-22
Do you have a sense of purpose for today or tomorrow? In the language John uses, to forgive also means to set free or release. Jesus sends us into this world for the same purpose his Father sent him – to help build God’s Kingdom by releasing the people we encounter from things that hold them captive – fear, insecurity, doubt, sickness, whatever it is
Put yourself in that room with the disciples, ask Jesus to fill you with the Spirit and show you who you can help set free today.
