April 10, 2011 Sunday of Lent
Synopsis: Imagine with me that we lived in The Kingdom of Forgive-en-ness. According to the prayer Jesus gave his disciples that is what we are to pray for (Mt.6:10).
Jesus also taught that in the Kingdom of Forgive-en-ness one must learn to forgive as a part of the process of being forgiven (Mt. 6:14-15). If the way you forgive others is an indicator of the way you have been forgiven then how much forgiveness do you possess?
One more thing to remember, forgiveness is not an option for the forgiven. It is the way of life. Jesus illustrated this point with a parable.
Scripture Text (NLT): Matthew 6:10, 14-15 (NIV); 18:21-35 (NLT).
