Sermons on Forgiveness
Love Your Enemies
In Matthew 5:43 Jesus commands us to love our enemies, but if we’re honest, that can be hard. This week we’re offering 3 ways to love your enemies!
I Have Prayed For You
Failure is an experience we all have. Will failure define you or refine you. Jesus wanted failure to refine Peter and use it as his platform for ministry. He might do the same thing in your life.
Jesus: God’s Gift of Forgiveness
Relational brokenness can be extra painful at the holidays. Taking a step towards forgiveness could be the most costly gift you give someone this season. From Luke 7.
When I’ve Failed
Guest speaker Dylan Kirkland closes the series with an impactful message on how you can’t outrun God’s forgiveness.
When The World Isn’t Right
The world seems full of injustices and moments when it seems irreparably broken. It would be easy to lose hope or live in bitterness. But Jesus followers are called to live with a different perspective that doesn’t give up.
When Relationships Fall Apart
Some of the most challenging moments of following Jesus are set in relationships. When a relationship falls apart, do you grab a hammer or an eraser?
Anger, it gets all of us from time to time. If we leave it unattended it can smolder and eventually get to a point of uncontrollable outbursts and sin. How do we deal with anger in a healthy and Holy Way?
Everything Is Against Me
You’ve not only thought it, you’ve probably said it. “The world is against me.” But reality can often be far from it. Joseph (and Jacob) have every reason to think that. But they learn that God is actually working through those very struggles for thier good. He is doing the same thing in your life.
Many of us are guilty in asking “Why me?” when something goes wrong or out of plan. We can tend to view it as a personal attack. Joesph felt that same way when he was victimized by the very people who were to protect him the most. That is only when Christ came and revealed himself more valuable than what he had lost. More valuable than that attack.
When someone attacks you, your character, your name, your reputation- it’s war! Our temptation, as people in the flesh, is to attack into realm of the flesh. Listen along to how Paul instructs us to do something different.
Don’t Judge Me
Sometimes we can cast judgement and not even realize we’re doing it. While it is natural to have an initial reaction when someone does something to harm us, offend us, or even talk bad about us, let’s change our perspective by incorporating these three ways to walk in the way of Jesus when it comes to judgement.
Instead of retaliation towards your enemies what if you gave them public praise? With God in your heart it is possible. Jesus has asked us to come at this world in a different perspective. Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.
