“Our Bibles and Forgiveness”
1. Even though centuries separate us, our modern culture has the same difficulties with forgiving others as people in Jesus’ time.
2. Forgiving others is very difficult. It’s probably one of the most penetrating teachings of Jesus.
3. Jesus’ teaching that we must forgive in order to be forgiven is different than the Old Testament teaching of an eye for an eye
and a tooth for a tooth.
4. Jesus’ teaching about forgiveness is not based on God’s willingness to bestow forgiveness but on our ability to receive forgiveness!

“Why He Did It”
1. Each year during Lent we are confronted with the question, why did Jesus have to die?
A. Necessary to fulfill prophecy.
B. To ransom us from Satan.
C. Christ was a sacrificial lamb.
2. Another reason is that many of his followers would give their lives as martyrs. He could not ask his followers to do anything he was unwilling to do himself.
3. Do you understand that the call to follow Jesus is a call to a radical lifestyle?
4. These are life-changing words to anyone who is serious about their devotion to Christ.
The Greatest is Love February, having Valentine’s Day within it, is called by some, the “love month.” The following quotes give us a picture of how some feel toward love.
“Nobody will know what you mean by saying that ‘God is love’ unless you act it as well” Lawrence Pearsall Jacks
“If we are to make a mature adjustment to life, we must be able to give and receive love.” Anna Trego Hunter
“These things I command you, that you love one another.” John 15:17
“And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” I Cor.13:13
My prayer for all of us is, that as we mature in age, our love for Christ and for one another would increase!
P.S. Please keep the dates: March 22, 23, and 24 open. We’re having a Spring Revival with Dr. George Mathison, Sr. Pastor Auburn UMC, Auburn, Alabama.
