How to Lose a Relationship in 5 Weeks
Week 4 Forgiveness
Relationships are hard to maintain. As people, we need to be in community, which means we have to learn how to navigate relationships with family, friends, acquaintances or strangers. God helps us have relationships that thrive.
Biblical forgiveness does not always mean reconciliation to that person.
Acts 13:2-5 (NLT)
Acts 15:37-41 (NLT)
Forgiveness doesn’t always mean reconciliation.
Proverbs 14:7 (NLT)
Forgiveness isn’t something you get, it’s something you give.
Forgiveness isn’t just an option for Christians. Jesus uses the word “forgive” 38 different times in the gospels.
Matthew 18:21-22 (NLT)
Mark 11:25 (NLT)
Matthew 6:14-15 (NLT)
Matthew 18:23-35 (NLT)
Forgiveness isn’t primarily for the benefit of the people who wronged us. It’s primarily for our benefit.
Forgiveness is first and foremost a legal transaction.
Ephesians 4:31-32 (NLT)
1 Peter 2:23 (ESV)
We forgive someone by cancelling the debt they owe us and paying it ourselves.
