• Praise God for forgiveness. A beautiful thing happened last night at the American Cinematheque Awards that we have to praise God for.Robert Downey Jr. was honored a few nights ago at the 25th annual awards and he asked Mel Gibson to present the award.
He said, “When I couldn’t get sober, Mel told me not to give up hope and encouraged me to find faith…”
Then he ended with: “…I would ask that you join me, unless you are completely without sin…, in forgiving my friend his trespasses and offering him the same clean slate you have me..”
Let’s start by forgiving both Mel and Robert for any poor choices they’ve made through the years and
then pray that the forgiveness Robert asked for Mel from his peers,would make an eternal difference in both of their lives, in the lives of the industry professionals, and with the public.
This is an exciting public moment in our mission field! Forgiveness is a powerful thing!2 side notes of mine:
pray also Mel and Robert come to know JESUS if they dont know him already.also pray for 25 yr. old actress Kat Dennings (who played Robert's daughter in a film back in 2007) comes to know YESHUA aka JESUS in her life as well.ISAIAH 53 and Isaiah 9:6 and Micah 5:2 points to the Jewish Messiah aka YESHUA aka JESUSAviad Cohen song Hooked on the Truth==========================================Mark 11:25
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.Colossians 3:13
Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
