March 6th News: “Forgive Us Our Trespasses…”

Series: The Lord’s Prayer.

Forgive Us Our Trespasses

Jesus makes it clear in the Lord’s prayer that we desperately need God. We need his provision (daily bread) and our loving Father generously provides. This Sunday we see that we also need his pardon (forgiveness) on a regular basis. Our loving Father generously pardons as well.

That can be easy to understand in our head (intellectually), but very difficult to understand in our heart (emotionally). But we must. That’s why Jesus includes the phrase, “And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us” in his model for prayer.

How are you doing in the area of forgiving others? How are you doing in the area of being forgiven by God. They are intimately related– and Jesus give us the order for true forgiveness to happen.

To prepare, read 2 Samuel 11 and 12. This is the story of a great man of God who learns about forgiveness in a way that changes him forever.

We will also celebrate the Lord’s Supper together this Sunday.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
