Getting Forgiveness Right, Part 1 of 2 (You Can't Redo Life)

August 12, 2021

When you’re wronged, you may become resentful and bitter. That’s why Jesus spoke on the vital importance of forgiveness. In a famous parable, He outlined the key principles to guide us as we wrestle with the wrongs we’ve done, and wrongs others have done to us.

When You’ve Been Wronged
Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.

In a parable of Jesus, we learn how God the Father is eager to answer the cries of His children. He said, “Ask and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find.” In this message from Luke 11, we learn more about prayer—a subject which is a mystery to many.

Prayer can be a great mystery, and many wonder if God really listens. Jesus left us a pattern for prayer, an outline of how we are to approach God. In this message we sit with the disciples and learn from the Lord’s Prayer.

When the seed of the Gospel is sown, it lands on many different soils. Some soil is receptive, but other soil will not allow the seed to grow. In Mark 4, we discover that although some will ignore the truth, others will hear and accept the Gospel—and be fruitful.

The parables of Jesus used real-life situations to teach spiritual truth. His hearers understood His illustrations of farmers, servants, prodigal sons, and vineyards. In this message we discover the meaning of the famous parable of the sower and his seed.

Have you ever experienced overwhelming disappointment? Moses led Israel for 40 years yet, because of one mistake, God told him, “You can’t enter the land.” How would you handle such a loss? In this message we discover how Moses faced his own personal “failure at the finish line.”

We’d like to think that our heroes have no flaws. But the Bible paints an honest picture, and Moses failed at the finish line. He tripped just yards from the end of his race. In this message we learn what happened and why God was so seemingly hard on the man He knew face to face.

When Jacob wrestled with an angel, he said “I will not let you go until you bless me.” Years later, Moses said the same thing. Near the end of his race of life, Moses asked God, “Show me your glory.” He wouldn’t let go of the God who never let go of him.

As runners in life’s race, we press toward a goal, a finish line, and a prize not made of gold or silver. Believers race toward God Himself, who fulfills all our dreams and bestows on us every good gift. Moses knew this when he prayed, “O Lord, show me your glory.”

They might be enticing, but we’ll pay a high price for the idols we worship, whether those idols are old or new. The people of Israel felt God’s judgment for making a golden calf. We'll be judged as well, if we don’t renounce the idols we hold dear.

It’s amazing how fast people forget. Right after Israel felt Sinai quake and saw Moses ascend the mountain, they turned to idolatry. We might be tempted to shake our heads in disbelief at their wandering hearts. But sadly, we also turn back to our idols after spiritual mountain-top experiences. In this message we learn what happened after Sinai, and what can happen to us.
