April 15 Sermon: Forgiveness: The Real "F" Word
With three more weeks to go in the" Forgiveness" sermons series, Pastor Kent provided clarity on the "how to" of forgiveness found in scripture. Isaiah 1: verse 18 covers the first step of forgiveness--remembering how much God has forgiven us. Forgiveness, he said, is NOT "just passage of time, nor condoning bad behavior or condoning the hurt, and it is not revenge or confrontation." Pastor Kent outlined the steps of forgiveness and the importance of releasing bitterness and negativity in our walk with God.
