Why Forgive?

There are many reasons why we need to forgive when we are offended. They are deep and eternal and, at the same time, very practical. This message reviews the meaning of forgiveness and gives six reasons that forgiveness must be a way of life for the Christ-follower.

Saying Isn't Believing pt 2

If we say forgiveness is important, powerful, and of God, that doesn't mean we truly believe it. We truly believe something when we act upon it. We believe these things about forgiveness only when we truly forgive. As James 2:18 declares, " Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do." So what does forgiveness truly mean and why should we forgive? This message looks at the depth of meaning and also the foundation of the character and nature of God found in John 17 for the answers.

Saying Isn't Believing

Proverbs 6:1-11 tells us how to get out of financial debt with what David Ramsey calls "Gazelle Intensity". This passion is motivated by fear of bondage. Rom 13:8 tells us we have another debt of love to God and people that can never be repaid. The passion to live out this debt is motivated by freedom in Christ! If 'Gazelle Intensity" is needed to break the bonds of financial debt motivated by bondage, then how much more "Gazelle Intensity" should Christ-followers have to live out our debt of love motivated by freedom? The hindrance to RUN in this freedom is either raw unbelief or spiritual slumber. This message examines these hindrances in two areas; talking to God and listening to God.
