This past Sunday, I wrapped up our series on IDENTITY with a message related to FORGIVENESS.   If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, a part of your IDENTITY in Christ is one of being totally, eternally forgiven.

One of the applications of that message was:  Since I’ve Been Forgiven, I’m To Forgive.   I’ve experienced enough hurt and betrayal in my life to know that’s not always easy.   However, it is something Jesus tells us to do.  If you’re struggling with FORGIVENESS I want to encourage you to listen to one of the following podcasts.   If the podcasts don’t help, I hope you’ll seek counsel from a biblically based Christian counselor.

Here are the podcasts:



God bless you,
