01 Mar Season Tingler – Walking in Forgiveness
Forgiveness is a choice we are left to make daily. When we zoom into looking at forgiveness and our call to forgive others, we find that the place all forgiveness truly flows from is the cross. We explore the parable of the unmerciful servant and see how God has freely forgiven each of us and in return is calling us to freely forgive. Throughout the message, we discuss several barriers to forgiveness in our relationships and marriages and the consequences of the prison we find ourselves in when we choose unforgiveness. No matter how much you are struggling with unforgiveness; you are in good company. None of us can forgive by our own power. It is only through surrender to Jesus and the miracle of the Holy Spirit within us that has the power to forgive.
