The Healing Power of Forgiveness, Confession and Absolution – Sermon – June 13 2010
Do you know and are you sure of the forgiveness of your sins from God? Are you taking your assurance of the forgiveness from God to help and inspire you to practice this same kind of grace with each other and especially with those who have really hurt you in your life? What do we learn about forgiveness from the scripture? Why is it so important for us? Why is God everywhere in the scripture so zealously urging us to accept His forgiveness and to forgive each other? Do you know that when we forsake love – love of God and love of one another – we sin, and the result is that we hurt each other?
