Patrick of Ireland, and the power of forgiveness!

    In the 5th century, Patrick was captured from his English home as a youth by Irish pirates and sold into slavery in Ireland, which at that time was a fierce land controlled by warring tribes. After a number of years, he received a vision from God telling him about a ship that would take him back to England. Patrick walked many miles across terrain he knew nothing about, being led by the Spirit of God, until he came to the ocean shore and he saw the ship of his vision. And this ship did indeed return him to his home.

    But God then told him that he was to go back to Ireland and spend his life preaching across the savage island. Because Patrick forgave those who had enslaved him, he was able to go to them with the love of Jesus, with no bitterness or impediment in his heart. As a result, he baptized over 120,000 Irishmen — and the reverb of this throughout the ages has, I imagine, led millions to a heavenly destiny. He was a Revolutionary of Love. Join the Revolution!
