The Landmine of Un-forgiveness

“Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil”    Ephesians 6:11

March 27, 2011 – Week 3

Reference scripture: Matthew 18: 21-35

Peter asked a great question.
Lord how many times should I forgive another person?

Jesus Teaches Us
  1.  Set no LIMITS on Forgiveness.
    No, not seven times,” Jesus relied, “ but seventy times seven.  Matthew 18:22
    “Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive.”    Luke 17:4 
  2. Don’t FORGET that you have been forgiven.
    “Then his master was filled with pity for him, and he released him and forgave his debt.”   Matthew 18:27

     Why is it so hard to forgive?
    • Because of  a hard heart
    Because of a loss (Expectations don’t hold up/promises not fulfilled)

    Because of little things that build up

  3. Forgive and PROSPER
    “Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it seperates close friends.”    Proverbs 17: 9
  4.
