Forgiveness: The Real F Word

On Sunday, we started a new sermon series titled Forgiveness:  The Real F Word.

I subtitled this series The Real F Word for two reasons.  First, it grabs your attention.  When you hear it you think "what?"  But second, forgiveness really is a word that many just don't understand.  Most people don't understand forgiveness, there are a lot of strange ideas of what it means and what it requires - and for some, it really is almost a dirty word.  So the real F word in the title fits.  Most people don't want to talk about forgiveness, fewer will admit they need forgiveness, and fewer yet freely give forgiveness.

This week we talked about the ultimate forgiveness, the level of forgiveness we all must receive if we ever hope to enter in the kingdom of God.  It's forgiveness from God.  How can assure that we are forgiven by God?  

We looked at the Parable of the Prodigal Son for some keys to forgiveness.  It was a great message on a very important topic.
