FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES                     RICK TEEPEN
Matthew 6:14-15

SONG....GATHER AT THE RIVER OF FORGIVENESS
 
Luke 23:34
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”
 
GOD'S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE....THE BIGGER OUR SIN, THE BIGGER IS GOD'S LOVE, BECAUSE HE FORGIVES ALL
 
1 Peter 2:21-23
To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. 22 “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.” 23 When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly. .
 
 
MATTHEW 5: 23-24
Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leaver your gift there in front of the altar. First, go and be reconciled to them, then come and offer your gift
 
ANGER....WHAT WE FEEL WHEN WE'VE BEEN WRONGED BY SOMEONE
 
Colossians 3:12-13 12

HURT....CAN FREEZE US FROM CONTINUING RELATIONSHIPS AND SEVER ALL TIES
 
 
Ephesians 4:32
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
 
UNFAIRNESS...A FALLEN WORLD IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE UNFAIR
 
 
Matthew 20:1-16
"For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire men to work in his vineyard. He agreed to pay them a denarius for the day and sent them into his vineyard. "About the third hour he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing. He told them, 'You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.' So they went. "He went out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour and did the same thing. About the eleventh hour he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, 'Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?'" 'Because no one has hired us,' they answered. "He said to them, 'You also go and work in my vineyard.' 8"When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, 'Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.' "The workers who were hired about the eleventh hour came and each received a denarius. So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. 11When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. 'These men who were hired last worked only one hour,' they said, 'and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.' "But he answered one of them, 'Friend, I am not being unfair to you. Didn't you agree to work for a denarius? Take your pay and go. I want to give the man who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don't I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?' "So the last will be first, and the first will be last."
 
REVENGE...HEAVIEST LOAD WE CAN CARRY
 
Leviticus 19:18
"`Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD."
 
Proverbs 20:22
Do not say, "I'll pay you back for this wrong!" Wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you.
 
LORD'S SUPPER...... SONG..."REMEMBER ME"
 
WE ARE A FALLEN PEOPLE
