ICYMI Worship 9/17/2017: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Forgiveness

Building on last Sunday’s theme on the Lord’s instructions to the Church for dealing with conflict and striving for reconciliation, today we consider the question of how much we are called to forgive, and what it means to ask the Lord to “forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.” Jesus’ message is clear – we who have been forgiven much (limitlessly) are to act in kind toward others. This isn’t easy, but our acts and attitudes of grace-giving not only heal brokenness in our relationship, but bears witness to others on how living for Christ sets God’s people apart in a world much more interested in revenge and retribution than reconciliation.
