This weekend, we will take a second look at the parable of the unforgiving servant. This time, we will be looking at the parable through the lens of extending forgiveness to other people. Offering forgiveness after we have been wronged is often difficult to do, but when we understand what we have been forgiven by God, it becomes the obvious choice. The title of this weekend’s message is “DEBT: PART TWO.”
This weekend, we will be looking at the parable of the unforgiving servant. This servant didn’t have the proper perspective on debt or the forgiveness that he received, which led him not to forgive his fellow servant. Many times, the struggle to forgive comes from a misunderstanding of our own sin debt and the depth of the forgiveness of God. The title of this weekend is “DEBT.”
This weekend, we are starting a brand new series. Before you can be a disciple, you must believe in Jesus and trust Him for salvation. At the heart of everything that a disciple does, there must be a desire to see the lost come to faith. Over the next few weeks, we will be talking about salvation and recapturing a desire to see the lost around us believe for the first time. This series is titled “FIRST, BELIEVE.”
What Jesus was implying was that He was God. This message will again challenge us to remember that Jesus has the power to forgive us our sins, which is greater than any miracle story.
In this message we will understand three basic things – Anger that lashes out, Anger that looks back, and Anger that lingers on. All this is coming straight out of the text in Matthew 5:21-30. The previous three messages were laying out the foundation for the series. This one is application all the way.
