hey
Forgiveness + Repentance = Reconciliation
#1 FORGIVENESS
to forgive, to be forgiven; it was an explicit part of Jesus’ prayer…; an action given by one (by Philemon) (by God)

#2 REPENTANCE
a change of mind; a turning away; it has cost; a needed action given by one party (by Onesimus)

#3 RECONCILIATION
In the initial salvific context of sinner justification, a process by which two parties have action and are brought together (by Onesimus & Philemon) (by Onesimus & God)

#3-ish RESTORATION
In the salvific context of the Christian process of sinner sanctification; by which two parties are in action to bring back, return, recover, put back in order (a saved sinner & God) (Post-conversion Onesimus)

For discussion this week:
1. The pastors talked about 3 important things the last 3 Sundays to help if someone does something wrong and you get in trouble with your parents. One thing is about FORGIVENESS; we have to ask for that by saying we are sorry, asking for forgiveness; “please forgive me” is the best thing to say and we must know we did something wrong. When you did something wrong, it made a separation between you and your parents. You have to really mean you are sorry, and confess what you did because your parents will know it if you are not truthful, but do that because you love your parents and each other (the brothers and sister) in your family. God is watching us all and He wants to forgive you also.

2. The second thing is we must REPENT—make sure we never do that again to prove we are really sorry by never doing it again, trying really hard to move away from that sin because we love our parents and those in our family, and we love God. If do that bad thing again, it makes it hard for your parents to believe you. You must be brave enough to take your punishment if your parents think you need it. Just because you say you are sorry does not always mean everything is OK. It may not be easy for you, but because you are trying to do the right thing God and others will be pleased.

3. RECONCILE means when you honestly ask forgiveness and show your parents you are really trying not to do something bad again, they will believe you. All of you will really feel better after that and God will be pleased with you too! Everyone will be much happier and trusting, and everyone can even celebrate together. God bless you all!
