Sermon Notes

   Last week we addressed four promises of forgiveness that God makes to us that He also desires that we make to others: I will not dwell on this incident. I will not bring this up again and use it against you. I will not talk to others about this incident. And I will not let this incident hinder our personal relationship. When we forgive in this matter, we are forgiving others the same way that God forgives us.

   This morning we are looking at the connection between mercy and forgiveness. God’s mercy is His not giving us the judgment we deserve for sins against him.

   How willing are we to extend mercy to others and not give them the judgment they deserve for their sins against us? How willing are we to forgive?
