Sermon Notes

   This is the 4th message in our series Getting to Know God – The Lord’s Prayer. In Mt. 6:12 Jesus teaches us to include in our prayer times something that we all need consistently; to ask God for forgiveness of our wrongs against Him and to forgive others for their wrongs against us.

   We will concentrate this morning on our forgiveness of others. First we will address what forgiveness is not. There are some things that we may believe about forgiving others that are not necessarily true.       

   Then we will look at some steps that are necessary to forgive those who have wronged or hurt us. Forgiving others isn’t always easy but it is necessary in order to bring healing to our emotional wounds and hurts so we can move on with life in healthy ways.
