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