Forgiveness is never easy. Many times we don’t think we can or we don’t want to forgive those who have hurt us. In this sermon, we explore various myths that might cause us to hold grudges toward those who wrong us. The strength to forgive others comes from us being forgiven by God through faith in Jesus Christ. We can and should forgive because we were first forgiven by God.
God is light and in Him there is no darkness. John teaches us how we view and deal with our sins tell us greatly about our faith. In this passage, we see different signs in our lives that show us whether we really know God or not.
We all have failed. We all have sinned. Second chances in this world is hard to come by. But we have a God, who is rich in mercy, sees our sins and loves us unconditionally.
