Sermon By:

Pastor Bob Paquet / September 3, 2000


FORGIVENESS (Matthew 18:21-35)

An act of obedience to the Lord (Luke 17:3-4)

Must be granted from the heart (Matthew 18:35)

Gives the offender what he needs rather than what he deserves (Romans 5:8)

Forgiveness is the love of Jesus in action and is a promise to:

  Not keep a record of wrongs suffered (1 Corinthians 13:5; Hebrews 10:16-17)

  Not to gossip about a person’s sins to others  (Ephesians 4:29)

  Not dwell on the offense yourself (Philippians 4:8)

  Restore fellowship as far as is biblically possible (Romans 12:18)
