Forgiven People, Forgive People

MATT. 18:21-35

UNFORGIVENESS BLOCKS THE FLOW OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE

1. THROW THE CALCULATIONS AND THE REGULATIONS OUT THE WINDOW

IT WAS LOVE THAT MADE JESUS GO TO THE CROSS, AND IT WAS COMPASSION THAT MADE JESUS DIE FOR OUR SINS

2. JESUS IS BOTH THE FORGIVENESS & FREEDOM THAT WE NEED 

 LUKE 4:18

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,

3. FORGIVE QUICKLY & OFTEN

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. “FORGIVENESS IS NOT AN OCCASIONAL HABIT: IT IS A PERMANENT ATTITUDE. WE MUST DEVELOP AND MAINTAIN THE CAPACITY TO FORGIVE. HE WHO IS DEVOID OF THE POWER TO FORGIVE IS DEVOID OF THE POWER TO LOVE”

4. YOU CAN BE BITTER OR ASK GOD TO MAKE YOU BETTER

 

PSALM 119:165 Great peace have those who love your law,
and nothing can make them stumble.

5 ALL OF LIFE IS A HEART ISSUE

 

PROVERBS 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.
