NOTE: VERY POWERFUL SERMON ON FORGIVENESS, BY DARYL TOWNSEND (with Off the Chain Ministries in Middleburg, FL.
One of the most ungodly kings in Israel’s history and yet God forgave him when he repented. How about us? Should we forgive people the way God forgave Manasseh?
The great gift of forgiveness given by God should so transform our lives that we would have a divinely lead heart, ready to forgive others. That is a life not only made “white as snow” but lives that way as well.
Some Christians have a conditional view of forgiveness while other Christians view it unconditionally. Instead, we ought to look at the intent of forgiveness that utilizes both aspects of it: reconciliation.
Without the spirit of forgiveness we cannot imitate our Savior who forgave us of our sins, nor can we be in His eternal presence.
Sometimes we have problems or concerns with others, maybe even believe those problems to be in fact sinful. How do you handle these situations? What did Jesus teach? Jesus gives answers to these questions and just as importantly, His authority when you handle things His way.
