Praying In: ...As We Have Forgiven Our Debtors

Sermon preached at RUF’s Wednesday Night Fellowship on Oct. 31, 2018. Forgiveness is difficult, painful, costly. As Mohatma Gandhi said, it is not for the weak but is “the attribute of the strong.” Where are we going to get the strength and the resources to forgive? In order to forgive, we need 1) to know that God has indeed forgiven the sins of the world; 2) the great depths to which we ourselves have been forgiven; and 3) to join ourselves to a community that values and nurtures forgiveness (i.e., the Church).
