Transcript

  • 1. Forgiving
  • 2. Hard To Forgive
    “Some while ago my husband left me for another woman. I have tried to entertain a forgiving spirit (even though he has never asked for my forgiveness), but at times, especially if I see him in public somewhere, I have flashes of anger and resentment. I feel guilty about this, and I am concerned for my soul. Can you offer any suggestions?”
  • 3. Philippians 2:2
    fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
  • 4. The Need of Forgiveness.
  • 5. The realities of forgiveness.
  • 6. Only God Can Truly Forgive Sin.
    "Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?" (Mark 2:7 NKJV)
  • 7. Forgiveness is Based On Conditions.
    Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do." And they divided His garments and cast lots. (Luke 23:34 NKJV)
  • 8. Forgiveness is Based On Conditions.
    Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. (Luke 17:3 NKJV)
  • 9. The attitude of forgiveness.
  • 10. Luke 17:3-4
    Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, 'I repent,' you shall forgive him."
  • 11. Colossians 3:13
    bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
  • 12. The Road to forgiveness.
  • 13. Get Your Heart Involved.
    "So My heavenly Father also will do to you if each of you, from his heart, does not forgive his brother his trespasses."
    (Matthew 18:35 NKJV)
  • 14. Your Heart Needs to Be Tender.
    And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.
    (Ephesians 4:32 NKJV)
  • 15. Forget About Retribution.
    Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, "VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY," says the Lord. Therefore "IF YOUR ENEMY IS HUNGRY, FEED HIM; IF HE IS THIRSTY, GIVE HIM A DRINK; FOR IN SO DOING YOU WILL HEAP COALS OF FIRE ON HIS HEAD." Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
    (Romans 12:17-21 NKJV)
  • 16. Actively Seek Resolution.
    "Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother.
    (Matthew 18:15 NKJV)
  • 17. Ephesians 4:31-32
    Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.
    (Ephesians 4:31-32 NKJV)
