A reader asks: ‘How would you respond to someone who tells you they are currently involved in an affair?‘
Thanks for your honesty in sharing the truth!
im so glad you answered that question. thank you!
and i totally agree with all you say here. when i was hiding some of my secrets i spent so much time and energy covering them up and justifying why i shouldnt say anything.
and youre right…if we could justify ourselves we wouldnt need Jesus. thing is, we cant justify ourselves. its impossible. we are all sinners. without Him, there is no justification. how good He is!
loving your vids, girl!
What a great post!
"Satan knows the scriptures better than you do!" You totally nailed it there. So often, we get caught up in the scriptures game and start to believe that it's all about convenient grace and not true repentance.
Thank you for this!
that's some strong truth, sister.
"let time tell the truth" that was so solid
Thank you for this video. I don't know your story but I detect a wisdom that only comes from having your world torn apart and the put back together by grace alone.
You are way cool
Great video Serena. I agreed with you completely.
Thanks, everyone. It was a tough question to answer simply because I have too much to say. I'll work on the other things I have to say within the next couple of weeks. Particularly to those who want to help (or do the right thing), but don't know how… there are things they need to know.
-spoken from the one with scarred knees….
I liked what you had to say. It leads me to ask another question from the other side of the fence. Should the woman involved in the affair apologize to the betrayed wife (considering they were friends at one point) or does the repentance only need to take place between the woman and God?
Cindy: The woman (friends or not) absolutely should apologize to the betrayed wife. Without question. This is not something that can be rushed and it may not come for a while because there is such a horrific mess laying around. The adulteress may be in shock, she may be being crushed under the cave in… there are many things that can dilute the purity of a timely apology. If you're needing to offer one, you know what I'm saying. If you are wishing you had one, then I hope this gives you patience and understanding in a place that has no tolerance for patience and understanding (pain and betrayal). I hope you're not on either side of this fence because it's hell for everyone.
I have some guidelines that I'll put together in depth and I'll let you know when it's finished.
I love messages of hard-hitting truth filled with grace. Thanks Serena!
