#SoulTies ‘You don’t need a ‘Sorry’ from an ex who offended you to move on’

For the newbies, “Breaking Soul Ties” – is a weekly column by Olusola Adio – dedicated to help you understand
what #SoulTies are and how to break them with the power of God’s Word
and the power of the Holy Spirit.

#SoulTies 12 starts shortly. Good evening y’all. 
#SoulTies 12 starts now. Hope you all had a great weekend so far.  
I want to state that we are not here to condemn anyone or
stigmatize anyone who has repeatedly fallen into sin due to #SoulTies.

•   
We are here to expose #SoulTies as the works of the enemy that
the blood of Jesus has been shed to purge us from.
•   
We are also not here to provide excuses and reasons for
Christians to continue in sin due to a misunderstanding of grace. #SoulTies
•   
The Bible states clearly in Romans 6:23 that the wages of sin is
death #SoulTies is no excuse for us to continue in sin
•   
We are here to work out our salvation (that Jesus already paid
with His blood) from #SoulTies according to God’s word.
•   
2 weeks ago, we started looking at how to recover from a broken
relationship. We looked into our commitment to God. #SoulTies
•   
Then we looked into forgiveness as the very first step of
recovery from a broken relationship. #SoulTies
•   
Today we are looking at the importance or non-importance of
getting a ‘Sorry’ from an offender.
#SoulTies
•   
Let’s look
at Joseph’s story once again. He was
captured by his brothers and sold into slavery at 17. #SoulTies
•   
From there, he got passed on to Potiphar. Then he got into jail
on a false rape allegation. #SoulTies
•   
When the king had some disturbing dreams, things happened
quickly and Joseph became Egypt’s
PM. #SoulTies
•   
Estimated time between his being sold into slavery and becoming
Egypt’s PM was about 13 years.
#SoulTies.
•   
There is no evidence to prove that Joseph received a ‘Sorry’ from anyone or apology in
these 13 years. #SoulTies
•   
In those 13 years, there was no expression of heaviness or
bitterness from Joseph in this period. #SoulTies
•   
There was just one mention of the two situations in Gen 40:15 by
Joseph. #SoulTies
•   
Genesis 40:15a For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of
the Hebrews: #SoulTies
•   
Genesis 40:15b and here also have I done nothing that they
should put me into the dungeon. #SoulTies
•   
He mentioned these to the chief butler as reasons why he would
want to leave the prison. #SoulTies
•   
There was no hint of bitterness and unforgiveness in his
statements. All he wanted was basic freedom. #SoulTies
•   
Also there was no proof that he wanted to seek audience with
Potiphar’s wife or his brothers for
an apology. #SoulTies
•   
Joseph was eager to regain his freedom and wasn’t eager for an apology or
restitution. #SoulTies
•   
The best of freedom available to him, would have been going back
to Potiphar’s house. #SoulTies
•   
However, the chief butler forgot to bring his case up with
Pharaoh for 2 years. #SoulTies
•   
In those 2 years, all he could have ever hoped for was a
restoration to Potiphar’s
house. #SoulTies
•   
He could also have hoped to be sold on to another slave master
by Potiphar. #SoulTies
