    Contributed by Simon Harrison on Apr 3, 2001
    based on 46 ratings

    Forgiveness is not about accepting that something wrong is somehow right, or trying to forget it: a prayerful reflection on Matthew 18.

    Today I would like to say a few words about things in our lives that we carry and things that we let go. I find today’s Gospel reading one of the most challenging in the Bible. With any apology, Jesus talks quite bluntly about the forgiveness God offers to us, and the expectation God has of us, as more

    What is forgiveness?

    INTRODUCTION Forgiveness is the most basic Christian quality. Without forgiveness, we wouldn’t have Christianity as we know it.

    based on 44 ratings

    God’s grace toward us is unlimited.

    Unlimited Grace Today we continue our series of messages on the topic of "grace". At root, the question we’re examining is "how can we know God?" How do we bridge the chasm between ourselves and our Creator? Given the fact of our sin and our guilt; and the fact of God’s perfect justice and more

    We are blessed when our sins are forgiven... how much greater is the blessing when we can forgive those who wrong us.

    God Is Merciful-- Are We? MT 18:21-35 Today’s scripture reminds me of the story told about Gen. Robert E. Lee after the civil war. Lee visited a Kentucky lady who took him to the remains of a grand old tree in front of her house. There she bitterly cried that its limbs and trunk had been more

    “ Forgive Us Our Debts” Picture if you will; a man sitting all alone in a darkened prison cell. His elbows propped on his knees and his head resting in his hands. The man’s name is Charles Preston, and he has been on death row for the last seven years of his life for his part in more

    based on 137 ratings

    Those who appreciate the depth of sin that God has forgiven in them will forgive others as well.

    This morning, we continue our journey through the parables of Christ. Parables, as I’ve noted before, are short and simple. They don’t have complex plots, or dozens of characters, like a Russian novel. You don’t need a Ph.D. in theology or Hebrew literature to understand them. And yet, despite more

    A consideration of five reasons that we should want to pursue forgiveness.

    We begin this morning with the knowledge that Jesus has commanded us to forgive. We add to that our general belief that forgiveness is a good thing. But, then, when we get into the actual situation where our heart has been stomped on and our emotions have been ripped to shreds, we need a more

    based on 58 ratings

    How to move toward forgiving those who have hurt you the most over the years.
