Forgiving the Inexcusable

February 26, 2023 Preacher: The Rev. Alfred T. K. Zadig Jr Series: Matthew

Scripture: Matthew 18:21–35, Ephesians 4:25– 5:2

Why is forgiveness so difficult?  C-S Lewis not only said: “To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you”, but also said “We all think forgiveness is a lovely idea until we have something to forgive!”  Today we come to Peter talking to Jesus about this topic of forgiveness.  Jesus responds (as He often does) with a parable to answer the question of forgiveness.  Today I invite you into this parable of the “Unforgiving Debtor.”  Yes, put yourself into the center of it and you will never look at forgiveness the same way again.
