U Matters - 16 Jul 2015

by Greg Anderson on July 16, 2015

On 17 June 2015, Dylann Roof, shot and killed 9 members of a Bible study at Emmanuel African Methodist Church in Charleston, South Carolina. The response of the family and fellow-members of the church to this atrocity stunned the US. They, as individuals and and a group, said that they forgave Roof. There was much confusion about and criticism of their forgiveness by some. But most stood back amazed and impressed at these faithful followers of Christ.

We do follow Christ when we choose to forgive. Are you as ready as the Charleston Christians to forgive others as Christ has forgiven you?
