Unlocking the Door to Forgiveness
Forgiveness is unlocking the door to set someone free and
realizing you were the prisoner! – Max Lucado
God has so much for each of us. Jesus told us in John 10:10 “I have come that you may have life in all its fullness and abundance.”
By choosing not to forgive you put a padlock on the door to your intended blessings. It may appear open at times but it’s not. You may get blessed here and there. But in order to walk in the full abundance of what God has for you, forgiveness
must completely take place in and through you. Not in mere words, but in actions. I call this “The Forgiveness Factor.” (Join us for our forgiveness message series in worship Sept 22-Oct 13)

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you (Ephesians 4:32)
Here is what forgiveness means: a sending away, a letting go, a release, pardon, complete forgiveness.
One of the most important lessons that you can learn about forgiveness is, it is not for the other person, it’s for you!
