Peeling Off The Outer Layers Of Filth and Sins

Sanctification is a life-long journey. This is how it started for me.

God prompted me to reach out to a good friend turned “enemy” to tell him that he has been forgiven and to pray for love, peace and joy in his life.

This is not easy on many fronts. This is a good friend of mine but we had given up on him and he had not listen to our advice and continue his wrong ways for more than 10 years. The last draw was when I realised he was doing the wrong things using my persona. We have not spoken for a couple years and I no longer wanted anything to do with this person. I don’t really have any “enemies” so I think he is my number 1 “enemy”. It’s so awkward to suddenly reach out to tell him that he is forgiven, and then to pray for him? I don’t even know how to pray at this point.. how to pray for others?!?

I obeyed and asked Holy Spirit to help me with all these that He wanted me to do. I messaged him exactly as God wanted me to.

What’s happening is that God is asking me to release forgiveness and to restore relationships. Such important Kingdom principles.

When I was living in Cambridge, I received a greetings card with 100 USD in my mailbox by error, it wasn’t very obvious which unit it’s meant for so I kept the card and money. God prompted me to return the card and money. I didn’t know if I actually brought the card with me back to Singapore. I actually don’t think I still have it! Later we really found it. 

We sent the card back to the sender in Canada with 120 USD, a letter and 2 bible verses.

To this good friend turned “enemy” mentioned above, I have reached out with the gospel a few times and invited to alpha a few times. He even came for the alpha introduction. Recently during a gathering overheard about his suicide encounter and I shared about Christ briefly and he agreed to meet again to learn more. However at the last min, he told me he is not ready to talk about accepting Jesus as his saviour. I passed two verses to him. May saving grace of God become real to him.
