Sermon Summary

Forgiveness is tough but it can change your life. It’s about admitting our mistakes and dealing with the results of what others have done. Sometimes, feelings of being not good enough, embarrassment, and guilt stop us from forgiving, and this just leads to more bitterness. But, Jesus shows us a better way, a way of healing and forgiveness. This is why faith is so important, because it can lead us to forgiveness and a fresh start.
