Forgive Others

Re:Verse passage – Matthew 6:9-15 (day two) 

But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions. Vs. 15

Jesus spoke about his relationship with God the father quite often. Do you remember the language he used? He would often speak of a complete unity, a oneness. He also prayed that we would be one. His desire was that we would be marked by love; known by that gracious, kind, and forgiving nature. Our church-wide theme this year is ‘Love Your Neighbor,’ and in the coming months we will find different ways to demonstrate this command. You may be living your life in obedience to scripture, but holding a bitterness toward someone. As a result, you may feel an emptiness to your prayer life. You may feel there is a hollowness to your faith. Restoring relationships is a full-time calling, and you have received it. Don’t let a broken friendship, bitterness toward family, or past transgressions muddy your ultimate relationship with Jesus.
