Why Do We Forgive? - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series


Bible Verse: Hebrews 12:15
“Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.”

Ephesians 4:32
“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”

Philippians 4:7
“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Reflect and Respond: Is there some unforgiveness that's pushing peace out of your life? What will you do today to address that? What advice or encouragement can you share with us about forgiving?

Prayer: Father, You see me, You know my heart, my mind, and any grudges and unforgiveness I hold there. Please forgive me, and allow me to do the same. Specifically ___________. Let Your peace rule in my life. Amen.

This video was very helpful. I know God is waiting each day to look for me to cast all my burdens on Him because he cares for me. I ask God’s help each day to come to Him for love, strength and willingness to depend on Him for the help and guidance I need for that day.

Lord Jesus, You were tender-hearted toward me when I was in sin and despair. And just as You forgave me, help me to be forgiving of others by Your grace, so that there remains no root of unforgiveness within my heart.

"Please, Lord, help me forgive others who may have wronged me, that when I forgive, You may also forgive me. Amen."

We forgive because Jesus forgives us and says if we do not He will not. Not only to forgive we must forget giving all to Jesus knowing God has and will forgive each of us.
