Sit. Walk. Stand.

Week 8

Forgiveness is core to the Christian faith. Without it, there is no reconciliation with God for our sin. Without its’ practice in the Church, we erode the foundation from which we can preach the very Gospel to a broken world. Properly understanding what it means to forgive only comes in light of understanding how much we have been forgiven. Understanding our position before a Holy King should help us better understand those around us so that we can handle situations with grace and patience. Too often, though, we tend to find ourselves too easily offended and demanding to be right. While there are those who have a right to be offended by the sins committed against them – some too unspeakable to even mention aloud – a large portion of the American Church has become too thin-skinned and we are unable to practice healthy forgiveness. For those who have a right to be offended, the discipline of forgiveness is often the beginning of a long, hard road that requires supernatural healing. For all of us, this spiritual discipline should help us better understand the grace and mercy of our great King.

If you would like to begin a conversation about following King Jesus or more information on how He might be calling you to go, we would love to hear from you. If you have questions, please feel free to ask them here.

Over this series, we’ve been working through a few books to help guide our training. If you would like to check them out, you can purchase them below.
