In this three part series our purpose is to consider the power of forgiveness to transform our world and our relationships.
Forgiveness is so important:- … forgiving ourselves.… forgiving others.… and, strange as it may sound, forgiving God.
It is through forgiveness that a comprehensive strengthening of all our relationships tales place.
Part 1 – Forgiving Ourselves
If we no longer want to feel guilty, or ashamed. If we want to live as if a sinful event in our lives never happened. If we want this, we need to understand the forgiveness of God to us.
Part 2 – Forgiving Others
Matthew 6:12, 14-15
We regularly pray the Lord’s Prayer petition – “Forgive our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.” But what are the practicalities of praying such a prayer? Especially when we have many reasons for not forgiving? This sermon wrestles with these questions.
Part 3 – Forgiving God
Psalm 69:1-3; 88:13-18
What happens when you are so upset at God that you actually tell Him you are upset with Him and that He doesn’t care? When you feel upset … and disappointed … and hurt by God … what do you do? This message wrestles with these questions.
