Father forgive them they know not what they do” [Luke 23:34]

You might ask, “What does separation and let-go have to do with forgiveness”?  Let me ask you a question.  Have you ever wanted things to change or tried to move forward into new things, but found you just slipped back into the old?  Our lives are a network of connections whether to things or situations, when considered long enough the trail to them will always bring us back to relationships.   They are the thoughts of our hearts and we call them memories.

Every man has a memory bank, whether good or bad these memories can keep us bound to the time or season the memory was birthed.   To move forward from that point of existence means there must be separation.  Separation is a concept of growth and uniqueness displayed from the beginning of time when God ‘separated’ all unique forms of creation.   Even today all healthy separation remains in the hands of God; man’s responsibility is the ‘let-go’, always and forever an attitude of the heart.

On the Cross the Father required ‘separation’, but the separation of His Son from Himself involved something else.  It involved the power and release of forgiveness that restored the Son to the Father and man to His God.

When forgiveness empowers man’s separation from all that will hold him back or tie him to the past, the power of forgiveness will catapult a life into God’s purpose and the desires of man’s heart spring forth.  “See, I am doing a new thing. Now it springs up; do you not perceive it”
