It's okay to say "I'm sorry" even to Jesus.

People, and some families, are so busy competing with one another that they could care less what is happening to their loved ones. Bitterness and unforgiveness is killing people from the inside out. They'd rather hate you for life than to just say "sorry" and attempt to get along. Have you ever noticed that when family or friends fall out, even the younger generations hate those people? You ask why they hate someone and they say, "I don't know, I just hate them. Ha ha." Saying "I'm sorry" makes a huge difference because it shows that the person has dropped their pride in order to get along." Saying it, verbally, means a lot, not just hiding behind friendliness. 

It's okay to say, "I'm sorry", even to Jesus for what He has done for us. We are so busy saying, "I'm glad" that we forget the pain that He went through for us......ALL of His life. It is a memory for Him. In Luke 16, the story of the rich man and the beggar, Abraham says to the rich man,  "Son, REMEMBER (Luke 16:25)  We take our memory with us. Why would Jesus forget what He went through for us? I really don't think that God threw that 'as far as the East is from the West'. He does that for our sins when we repent. 

I believe that Jesus showed us an example in Luke 16 to show us that there just may be some hard-hearted people who will still try to use us and defame us even in eternity. Some just cannot say, "I'm sorry" because they don't think that you deserve it. The rich man was still trying to use Lazarus after treating him horribly in real time! And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus.....(Luke 16:24)  SEND Lazarus??? Lazarus was STILL beneath him in his own mind, even in Hell when he , (the rich man) lifted up his eyes and begged for mercy! Even in Hell your enemies will attempt to defile your name!

But in that great by and by, while we are in Abraham's Bosom (A very blessed area whatever it may be,) there is going to be a great gulf fixed between us and our enemies where we won't even be able to help them if we tried. "....And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence."(Luke 16:26)  Even those that they left behind won't be able to be warned of Hell. After death it's too late. Are you saved? On the other side of the Grave, it's too late. You won't be able to help those that you love then. 

Luke 16:27-28
Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

This will be your answer if you haven't repented before Death:

Luke 16:29-31
Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

That puts it into perspective. Are you saved? Have you accepted Jesus? Romans 10:9

Romans 10:9
9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

God bless you to believe.......~ Essie
