Forgive. Period.

Forgive. Period.

In his sermon, “Forgive. Period.” Pastor Craig shares how the debt we owe to our God is so great, there is only one way to come into relationship with him. God’s mercy was evident in that while we were lost in sin, God sent his son that our debt might be paid. On the cross, Jesus declared, “It is finished.” The debt had been paid. God’s mercy calls us to live out that mercy in our lives. How many times should we forgive? Not seven, but seventy-seven.

The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant

When Peter asks about the limits of forgiveness, Jesus responds with a parable that suggests human forgiveness should mirror the unlimited mercy of God.

Matthew 18:21-35

    Pastor Craig,
    I’ve always had a problem with that open ended statement, “Let go” or “Let it go.” I’d say to myself, Let go of what? I know it meant in part to let go of thinking, ruminating over the situation etc., but sometimes I can’t turn off my head.
    You gave me(us) the “what” I’ve been searching for: if I’m to fully forgive, if I’m to let go of the banana (lol) I need to let go of the hurt I felt this person caused and/or the fear that I will be hurt again. Only then will I be able to stop them from renting space in my head. (I’ll have evicted them) And only then can the process of forgetting what happened in the first place, begin.

    This has been a huge awakening for me.
    Thank you!
