Breathing Underwater • 14-Feb-2021
Senior Pastor Marty Grubbs continued in our Breathing Underwater series, focusing on making amends—forgiving and extending forgiveness. This step in the 12-step program is one of the most difficult as it means reaching out to those whom you have hurt in the past. Forgiveness doesn’t come easy or natural. We are so concerned with our image and self-preservation that admitting we’ve wronged someone means removing the façade and being vulnerable and exposed. So why even bother? Marty reminded us of how God responds to us when we turn to him for forgiveness, and how, in turn, we are to deal with forgiveness in our relationships. In both giving and receiving forgiveness, certain guidelines, and even boundaries, should be considered. As always, we can turn to many passages in God’s Word to provide the hows and whys of owning up to our responsibilities when it comes to forgiveness.
