Let's dive deeply into the incredible message of forgiveness, in light of the biblical passages from Matthew 6:14-15 (The Message), Luke 23:34 (The Message), and Ephesians 4:32 (The Message). In this study, we will discover how to apply Christ's forgiveness model in our everyday lives.


Matthew 6:14-15


Forgiveness that Redefines Relationships:

"When you assume the posture of prayer, remember what I said earlier: 'Knock, and the door will be opened to you. Ask, and you'll receive. Seek, and you'll find.' With your back to petty things, be generous. Open up, be expansive. Give your life away; you'll find life given back, but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity."
