Sermon Notes

   Last week we looked at the connection between unforgiveness and anger. We addressed both unhealthy and healthy ways to deal with our anger and saw that unless we learn to deal with our anger, forgiving others for their hurtful words or actions will be extremely difficult. And it is in choosing to forgive the person, whenever the hurt and pain resurfaces, that we will find our anger and bitterness diminishing.

   This is the third message in our series entitled Total Forgiveness. As a follow-up to last Sunday’s message, we will address how responding in healthy ways to another person when they are angry with us can help to diffuse their anger and make it easier for them to forgive us so they are able to let go of any bitterness or resentment; so it doesn’t become a wedge in our relationship with them.
