The Freedom and Power of Forgiveness

by

The Freedom and Power of Forgiveness Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Almost no concept is more foundational to Christianity than forgiveness. John MacArthur examines God's Word to answer the questions you have about the possibility, the power, the necessity, the freedom, the meaning of forgiveness.g

Synopsis:

Seventy times seven.Forgive one another.Turn the other cheek.Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

We may toss these phrases around in our minds like old cliches, or dispense them like aspirin to others who are struggling with legitimate grievances toward another person. But forgiveness isn't a casual concept. God takes it seriously. So seriously that He has not given us an option in the matter. Obedience to His Word is essential.

Why? Mostly for our own sake. There can be no intimacy with God and no love for others in a heart where bitterness and unforgiveness dwell. But where there is forgiveness, there is freedom. Spiritual power. Emotional healing. And sweet fellowship.

Where there is forgiveness, there is a heart that God has touched--and a life that God can bless.

Forgiveness. Almost no concept is more foundational to Christianity--or more important to your personal and spiritual well-being. Yet in an age where it has become fashionable to forgive yourself rather than to forgive others, can our modern ways of reckoning guilt, blame, mercy, and justice be reconciled with Jesus' teaching?

Pastor John MacArthur thoroughly examines God's Word to answer the questions you're asking about the possibility, the power, the necessity, the freedom . . . the meaning of forgiveness--for your relationships, and for your soul.
