Bible Text: Matthew 6:9-15 |


If you have been forgiven by God, if you have received and experienced God’s forgiveness, you will forgive others. A natural result of being forgiven is to readily forgive others.

What is forgiveness? 1. You don’t take revenge; 2. You desire good for them; and 3. You seek to restore the relationship, if possible.

Forgiveness is not: 1. The absence of anger toward sin; 2. Forgiveness may not remove sins consequences; and 3. Forgiveness of an unrepentant person doesn’t look the same as forgiveness of a repentant person. Let gratitude in your heart motivate you to more easily forgive.
