Sermons about Forgiveness
Love is not irritable...it is not resentful. That sounds "nice" doesn't it? Yet what does it look like in practice? While the words of 1 Corinthians 13 may sound nice in a wedding they are extremely difficult to put into practice. In fact, it is hard to love people...but fortunately God is in the business of helping me do the impossible.
Big Freedom in Grace means a Big Life living for Christ. We are no longer bound and hindered by the sin that Christ died for.
Christ's death is the perfect sacrifice for humanity's sins against God. This perfect sacrifice cleanses those who place their faith in Christ so that we can live without guilt. In Christ sinful individuals are totally accepted and forgiven.
Today Ronnie talks about reconciliation and forgiveness. Working from Matthew 5:43-44 and Luke 17:3-5, he reminds us that forgiveness and reconciliation are foundational in our walk with Christ. Christ's forgiveness is inexhaustible and beyond numbers because he delights in showing mercy.
Lesson Aim: To learn more about the reality and implications of Jesus’ authority to forgive sins.
Steve continued with the exploration of grace this week. Grace should bring change in our lives and that means we are free from the chains of sin and the burden of the law. We are under GRACE!
Have you ever made a mistake that the consequences seemed huge? Well your not a long. King David did just that. How did he get there? What was his response? Can a person prevent these types of mistakes? This message explores these questions.
John the Baptist's initial hesitancy to baptize Jesus is compared with our modern tendency to measure by behavior. John wanted to be baptized by Jesus to symbolically demonstrate his inferior righteousness, but that was not why Jesus came. Jesus came to demonstrate his plan to interpose himself into our sinful hopelessness.
Continuing through our study of GRACE, Pastor Steve preached this week that since we receive grace through faith in Christ, we should no longer keeping sinning but should instead recognize that our sin was crucified on the cross and that we are no longer sinners but are instead saints in the eyes of Christ.
