This Sunday is the last in our series Forgiven to Forgive. Matthew 18:21-22 says, “Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.” Shannon will be calling us to let go of our grudges and extend the forgiveness that was given to us.
We worship Jesus because even though He was fully God, he humbled himself and became human in order to forgive us (Philippians 2:5-8). God didn’t have to forgive us, but He did. Over and over and over again He forgives.
Forgiveness is essential to worship. Jesus tells us that if we don’t forgive others then we will not be forgiven. (Matthew 6:14-15) Think about the forgiveness you have received from Christ and ask yourself if you have given that same forgiveness and grace to people who have wronged you.
Don’t wait. Deal with it… now! (Matthew 5:23-24)
