Why Is Forgiving  Important?

Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do…” (Luke 23:34)

Sermon About Forgiveness: The Power of Forgiveness Psalm 130

God’s forgiveness is our pattern for forgiving others, Eph. 4:32; Col. 3:12-13.

Our forgiveness of others is the measure of forgiveness we will receive, Matt. 6:14-15.

Forgiving yourself for past mistakes is an essential part of healing. It helps us move on and live in the present.

Why Do People Need To Be Forgiven?

If we hold onto our anger, resentment, and bitterness, we will never feel better. Forgiving ourselves means letting go of those feelings and moving forward with our lives.

Forgive: “to send forth, send away (n)…a dismissal, release” (Vine); remit.

When God forgives He: blots out (Acts 3:19); forgets (Heb. 8:12, doesn’t hold sin against us); Receives back the sinner who repents (Lk. 15:20-24).

-Likewise, we are to forgive each other at all times.

It's easy to blame other people for our mistakes, but we must also learn to forgive ourselves. In fact, research shows that forgiving ourselves is more effective than forgiving others. This is because when we forgive others, we give them power over us. By contrast, when we forgive ourselves, we take back control of our lives.

Great power in forgiveness, but first we must have the power to forgive those who sin against us.

Forgiv Comes From Our Own Forgiveness.

How Can I Start A Conversation About Forgiveness In My Life?

If you're struggling with forgiveness, start small. Ask yourself what you would need to do to forgive someone who has wronged you. Then ask yourself what you would need in order to forgive yourself.

1. The power to have compassion for others, having received it ourselves, Lk. 6:36.

a. Matt. 18:21-35: Servant received mercy, yet did not give it.

b. Lk. 7:36-43,47: Simon “loved little” (7:47, 39) because he did not see or appreciate his need for forgiveness.

2. The merciful will obtain mercy (be forgiven), Matt. 5:7; 6:14-15.

Forgiv Comes from the Power of Love, Col. 3:13-14.

 Love demands forgiveness, 1 Jno. 4:10-11; 1 Pet. 4:8. 1 Cor. 13:4-6: Love is applied in forgiving another person:

Love does not dwell on evils it has incurred. If one dwells on evil, bitterness and resentment are sure fruits.

There are some who like to keep score of wrongs done!

Bearing a grudge is not in the character of love. Proverbs 10:12

We should seek forgiveness!! Luke 17:3

The Power to Restore the Soul from Sin & Death (Lk. 15:32).

The Power to Restore Relationships.

It helps us move past the pain and hurt of the past by releasing the negative emotions associated with it. By forgiving ourselves, we release the burden of guilt and shame that comes along with feeling bad about something.

 Restore Relationships With God, Lk. 15:18-24.

 Restore Relationships Between offended & offender, Matt. 18:15; Lk. 17:3-4.

Acts 8:22  Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.

Forgiving yourself means letting go of resentment towards yourself. You might feel guilty for what happened, but you shouldn't let those feelings stop you from moving forward. Instead, focus on the positive aspects of your life. For example, think about all the things you've accomplished since then.

Only God Can Forgive Sin

Must be honest about our sin, Isa. 59:1-2, 12-13. Always seek God’s forgiveness first; Sin is always against Him, Psa. 51:4.

God’s forgiveness heals the soul. The Power to Restore the Mind from the Guilt & Pain of Sin, Psa. 32:1-5, 7, 11; 51:8, 10-12.

For forgiveness someone had to pay the penalty.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

No Limits to Forgiveness, Mat 18:21-22.

As God Forgives, Mat 18:23-27 (completely, immediately, with finality, Psa. 103:3, 8-14).

With Humility, 18:28-30. With Mercy & Compassion, 18:31-34. From the Heart, 18:35 (genuine).

He has declared all under sin Rom. 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
