Matthew 6: 9-15; Colossians 3: 13; Ephesians 4: 32

Throughout the Gospels, we hear Jesus teaching through parables, direct command and prayer (The Lord's Prayer) that there is a significant relationship between the forgiveness of our heavenly Father and our mandate to forgive those we connect with who may hurt or offend us. Do we fully grasp the immensity of God's gracious forgiveness, made available through the death of Jesus, His Son? 

The challenge then for us is to comprehend the command/requirement, as reiterated by Paul and other writers to forgive others, "just as in Christ God forgave you." Join us as we dig into scripture and grow to more fully understand "forgiveness".
