Forgiveness! Do you ever wonder why we as Christians struggle with forgiveness the way we do? Forgiving others … Allowing God to forgive us … ?
Do we realize what forgiveness is? What it means?
Try this on for size. Forgiveness means “right with God.” Right with God. Are you following me? Right with the Supreme, Omnipotent Ruler of the Universe. Right with God Most High. Totally fitting into God’s holy plan and purpose.
The “Consuming Fire” has welcomed us with outstretched arms to his family.
Message Title: Forgiveness … Right with God!
Message Text: Psalm 32:1, Luke 7:36-50 & Selected Texts
Leon Morris … When Paul goes on to ask, who can be against us? he does not mean that the Christian has no opponents. His entire correspondence is eloquent of the foes the Christian encounters constantly. He means that with God “for us” it makes not the slightest particle of difference who is against us. No foe can prevail against people who are supported by a God like that. The Christian’s confidence is in God, not in anything he himself does, and for all eternity he can rely on God’s gift.
