Material: The Gospel-Centered Life
Progress: 8th session 'Forgiveness'
Bible passage: Matthew 18:21-35
Forgiveness is required in every relationship because no one is perfect. As the today's parable points out, all Christians should forgive others. It is not because we can get favor from God by doing so, but because we are already forgiven. Forgiveness is not easy and no one can do it on his own. However, the gospel helps us to focus on our sins instead of someone who offended us - by knowing that offended God initiated the reconciliation with the offender (us).
Therefore, we will be motivated and learn how to forgive others through the gospel.
