I saw a video the other day.  It was about a man who lost his pregnant wife and his only daughter when the car that he was driving was hit head on by a teenage drunk driver. 


It’s a tough one to watch but SO POWERFUL.  There is so much in it….the forgiveness, the healing, the mercy, the love.  But, by far, the greatest message, at least for me, was this (paraphrasing):

‘It’s not me who forgave him, oh-no, I could never do that.  All I had to do was to move aside and let Christ work through me!’

We need to get out of our own way sometimes, and let God do his work through us.  
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”  Matt. 19:26

Move aside, just move aside!
