Week 3: The Red Letter Challenge - Week of Forgiving

Back to Message Archive


Forgiveness is not OPTIONAL.

Grace  +               Mercy         =       Peace

“Everyone says forgiveness is a lovely idea until they have something to forgive.” -C.S. Lewis



The responsibility of BINDING and LOOSING (Matt. 18:18).



The story of LIMITLESS forgiveness and UNPAYABLE debt (Matt. 18:21-35).


The enemies of forgiveness are…

        PRIDE                                          SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS                        ANGER

        HATE                                          BITTERNESS                                                   DESPAIR

…but forgiveness is the enemy of SATAN.


The one sinless person who ever walked this earth said (Luke 23:34)?

And the first martyr said (Acts 7:60)?
