Will God Forgive Me if Someone Else Won’t Forgive Me for a Sin?
Series: Forgiveness
Based on Matthew 16:19
 
Sometimes it gets confusing for Christians when we hear Jesus say, “if you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven. And if you do not forgive anyone his sins, they are not forgiven.” It can make you nervous, especially when someone might not want to forgive you when you repent. But God is the final authority on everything - especially forgiveness. Even if someone else won’t forgive my repentant heart, God always will. He even gave his Church on earth the “Ministry of the Keys” to work toward that very goal of repentance and faith. May God continue to grant forgiving hearts - just like his.

    Will God Forgive Me if I Refuse to Forgive?
    Series: Forgiveness
    Based on Matthew 6:14-15
     
    Jesus made it very clear that an unwillingness to forgive on my part only drives the Holy Spirit further away from my heart. I always want to forgive from my heart like Jesus did, but there are dangers, pitfalls and snares from the Devil that often make forgiveness challenging for me. Revenge and “wanting nothing to do with you” have no place in forgiveness from the heart. We will continue to run to Jesus for strength to forgive as much and as often as it’s needed!

    Must I Forgive Even if Someone Isn’t Sorry? – Children’s Message
    Series: Forgiveness
    Based on Ephesians 4:32
     
    Forgiveness is easy to say, but very difficult to put into practice so much of the time. God gave us some clear direction about what he wants us to do when someone sins against us. Must I forgive - even if the offender isn’t sorry? The answers is: Yes, if I want to be like my hero, Jesus Christ. Jesus forgives me for my many sins, so he empowers me to forgive - just like he did!

    Peter’s Confession…is our confession…a supreme Confession
    Based on Matthew 16:13-18
     
    Confessions of faith come in all sorts of shapes and sizes (words and actions). Jesus helps us to see why Peter’s confession was something so great and worthwhile to share in. It highlights the fact that everything in our life depends on Jesus, and he always comes through for us. Our standing with God doesn’t depend on the level of our confession, but on what Jesus did for us. That makes for great confessions of faith out of thanks for who Jesus is and what he did for us.

    There are some things you should know about weeds…
    Based on Matthew 13:24-30;36-43
     
    Weeds are tricky. Jesus certainly thought so. The problem with weeds is that you sometimes can’t tell the difference between a weed and a good plant. That also carries over into our spiritual life. Jesus said that weeds (unbelievers) involve sowing, growing and mowing. He told us why (or who) sowed those weeds, why allow them to grow and why we don’t have to worry about them forever. The more we know about them, the more equipped we are to deal with them in a godly way!
