 Today's Message: 

The Journey of Forgiveness
by Scott Ancarrow

Matthew 18:21-35

"Forgiveness is one of the most difficult ways to follow Christ, but one of the most core ways we imitate Christ in a world bent on vengeance and retaliation." - Brian Zahnd   

Forgiveness is both a decision and a repeated process.

The process:

  1. Have pity on the person

  2. Absorb the debt

  3. Let them go. 

Matthew 18: 21-22

Forgiveness is constant, but also communal

Matthew 18:15-17

Both Forgiveness and the lack of it are costly. 

Matthew 18:35

Hebrews 12:15 

Forgiveness closes the door on a painful past in order to open the door to a new future.
