  • 00:06:12.211 --> 00:06:14.347
  • I determined to do that longbefore we came on the tour
  • 00:06:14.380 --> 00:06:17.917
  • and the first week I was outon the road something happened
  • 00:06:17.950 --> 00:06:21.554
  • in our culture that ended upbeing the best illustration
  • 00:06:21.587 --> 00:06:25.258
  • of what I wanted to talk aboutof anything you have ever seen.
  • 00:06:25.291 --> 00:06:30.229

  • thought she wasin her apartment,
  • 00:06:39.238 --> 00:06:41.073
  • was in the wrong apartmentand when she walked in,
  • 00:06:41.107 --> 00:06:44.143
  • there was a manin her apartment.
  • 00:06:44.177 --> 00:06:46.379
  • She pulled out her revolver andshot that man and killed him.
  • 00:06:46.412 --> 00:06:50.116
  • This last week,she was sentenced.
  • 00:06:50.149 --> 00:06:52.118
  • She was convicted of murderand she was sentenced
  • 00:06:52.151 --> 00:06:56.556
  • to several years in prison.
  • 00:06:56.589 --> 00:07:00.092
  • All of that, we saw.
  • 00:07:00.126 --> 00:07:02.361
  • What you may not have seen iswhen she came
  • 00:07:02.395 --> 00:07:04.530
  • for the sentencing hearing,the brother of the man
  • 00:07:04.564 --> 00:07:09.368
  • who was shot--a man who was shotwas a man named,
  • 00:07:09.402 --> 00:07:12.438
  • Botham Jean, his brother,Brandt, asked the judge
  • 00:07:12.472 --> 00:07:16.876
  • for permission to speakand what he said,
  • 00:07:16.909 --> 00:07:21.347
  • once you watch it,you will never forget it.
  • 00:07:21.380 --> 00:07:25.418
  • Best introduction I couldever have to what I wanna talk
  • 00:07:25.451 --> 00:07:28.287
  • to you about tonight isright here on the screen.
  • 00:07:28.321 --> 00:07:30.823
  • Brandt Jean: I don't want to saytwice or for the hundredth time
  • 00:07:32.892 --> 00:07:42.902
  • what you've, or how muchyou've taken from us.
  • 00:07:44.337 --> 00:07:50.309
  • I think you know that.
  • 00:07:50.343 --> 00:07:54.146
  • But I just--
  • 00:07:54.180 --> 00:07:56.182
  • I hope you go to Godwith all the guilt,
  • 00:08:05.191 --> 00:08:13.165
  • all the bad thingsyou may have done in the past,
  • 00:08:15.535 --> 00:08:18.037
  • each and every one of usmay have done something
  • 00:08:18.070 --> 00:08:21.340
  • that we were not supposed to do.
  • 00:08:21.374 --> 00:08:23.376
  • If you truly are sorry, I knowI can speak for myself,
  • 00:08:23.409 --> 00:08:28.281
  • I forgive you and I knowif you go to God and ask him,
  • 00:08:28.314 --> 00:08:38.124
  • he will forgive you.
  • 00:08:38.157 --> 00:08:46.198
  • And I don't thinkanyone could say it--
  • 00:08:46.232 --> 00:08:48.668
  • again, I'm speaking for myself.
  • 00:08:48.701 --> 00:08:50.202
  • I'm not even on behalfof my family.
  • 00:08:50.236 --> 00:08:52.905
  • But I love you just like anyoneelse and I'm not gonna say
  • 00:08:52.939 --> 00:09:01.781
  • I hope you rot and die just likemy brother did,
  • 00:09:01.814 --> 00:09:06.085
  • but I personally wantthe best for you
  • 00:09:06.118 --> 00:09:13.292
  • and I wasn't gonna ever say thisin front of my family or anyone,
  • 00:09:13.326 --> 00:09:19.298
  • but I don't even want youto go to jail.
  • 00:09:19.332 --> 00:09:26.138
  • I want the best for you becauseI know that's what--
  • 00:09:26.172 --> 00:09:33.579
  • that's exactly what Bothamwould want you to do.
  • 00:09:33.613 --> 00:09:36.916
  • And the best would be giveyour life to Christ
  • 00:09:36.949 --> 00:09:43.322
  • 'cause I'm not gonna sayanything else.
  • 00:09:43.356 --> 00:09:46.559
  • I think giving your lifeto Christ would be
  • 00:09:46.592 --> 00:09:48.294
  • the best thing that Bothamwould want you to do.
  • 00:09:48.327 --> 00:09:53.499
  • Again, I love you as a personand I don't wish
  • 00:09:55.935 --> 00:10:02.975
  • anything bad on you.
  • 00:10:03.009 --> 00:10:10.816
  • I don't know if this is possiblebut can I give her a hug please?
  • 00:10:10.850 --> 00:10:17.556
  • Please?
  • 00:10:17.590 --> 00:10:22.828
  • Tammy Kemp: Yes.
  • 00:10:22.862 --> 00:10:24.196
  • [applause]
  • 00:10:31.871 --> 00:10:39.779
  • Dr. Jeremiah: I wanna talkwith you tonight about the power
  • 00:10:39.812 --> 00:10:42.081
  • of forgiveness and how Godhelps us to learn
  • 00:10:42.114 --> 00:10:45.184
  • how to appreciatehis forgiveness of us and,
  • 00:10:45.217 --> 00:10:48.854
  • out of that, our forgivenessof one another.
  • 00:10:48.888 --> 00:10:52.091
  • So, the first thing that we needto learn about forgiveness is
  • 00:10:52.124 --> 00:10:55.094
  • that we should forgive primarilybecause we have been forgiven.
  • 00:10:55.127 --> 00:11:00.933
  • So, why do we needto be forgiven?
  • 00:11:00.966 --> 00:11:03.602
  • Because we commit sin.
  • 00:11:03.636 --> 00:11:06.105
  • Now, you know there'sthree kinds of sin.
  • 00:11:06.138 --> 00:11:08.074
  • There's the sin of commissionwhich is when you do something
  • 00:11:08.107 --> 00:11:10.276
  • you shouldn't do,and the sin of omission
  • 00:11:10.309 --> 00:11:12.578
  • when you don't do somethingyou should do,
  • 00:11:12.611 --> 00:11:14.947
  • and the sin of dispositionwhen you do something
  • 00:11:14.980 --> 00:11:18.584
  • while harboring wrong attitudesand motivations.
  • 00:11:18.617 --> 00:11:22.722
  • Let me give you a pictureof this that will stay
  • 00:11:22.755 --> 00:11:25.224
  • in your mind.
  • 00:11:25.257 --> 00:11:26.826
  • Imagine we're allowed to lookinto the vestibule of heaven
  • 00:11:26.859 --> 00:11:28.961
  • and there is this giant ledgerin heaven
  • 00:11:28.994 --> 00:11:33.766
  • and it's got your nameon it,
  • 00:11:33.799 --> 00:11:36.435
  • and inside this ledgerthere are two pages:
  • 00:11:36.469 --> 00:11:39.138
  • one with all of your liabilitiesand one with all of your assets.
  • 00:11:39.171 --> 00:11:44.176
  • Now, I hate to tell you this,if you were to look
  • 00:11:44.210 --> 00:11:46.378
  • into your book without knowingthe forgiveness
  • 00:11:46.412 --> 00:11:49.448
  • and grace of Christ,you would see the asset page
  • 00:11:49.482 --> 00:11:53.018
  • totally empty.
  • 00:11:53.052 --> 00:11:55.187
  • There wouldn't beanything there.
  • 00:11:55.221 --> 00:11:57.523
  • And the liability pagewould be out the door.
  • 00:11:57.556 --> 00:12:02.461
  • The Bible says thatbefore Christ comes
  • 00:12:02.495 --> 00:12:05.431
  • to bring forgiveness to us,we are sinners,
  • 00:12:05.464 --> 00:12:09.168
  • "for all have sinned andcome short of the glory of God."
  • 00:12:09.201 --> 00:12:12.772
  • Don't look surprised.
  • 00:12:12.805 --> 00:12:14.473
  • We're all in the same boat.
  • 00:12:14.507 --> 00:12:15.841
  • Every one of us in this room,starting with the guy
  • 00:12:15.875 --> 00:12:18.177
  • who's talking,we're all sinners.
  • 00:12:18.210 --> 00:12:20.780
  • Some of us are sinnerssaved by grace,
  • 00:12:20.813 --> 00:12:22.815
  • and some of us are just sinners.
  • 00:12:22.848 --> 00:12:26.352
  • But the Bible says that becausewe have all sinned and are apart
  • 00:12:26.385 --> 00:12:30.122
  • from the grace of God,until we come to Christ
  • 00:12:30.156 --> 00:12:33.292
  • for his forgiveness of our sin,the picture
  • 00:12:33.325 --> 00:12:36.495
  • of our book in heavenis not a pretty picture.
  • 00:12:36.529 --> 00:12:39.865
  • The asset column is emptyand the liability column is
  • 00:12:39.899 --> 00:12:44.336
  • out the door.
  • 00:12:44.370 --> 00:12:45.704
  • And you say, "Well, I'm lessof a sinner than my friend."
  • 00:12:45.805 --> 00:12:48.674
  • Big deal.
  • 00:12:48.707 --> 00:12:50.009
  • God doesn't grade on the curve.
  • 00:12:50.042 --> 00:12:51.343
  • He gradeson the absolute percentage.
  • 00:12:51.377 --> 00:12:55.014
  • And God won't care aboutanything else except whether
  • 00:12:55.047 --> 00:12:58.117
  • or not you have come to receivethe forgiveness
  • 00:12:58.150 --> 00:13:00.986
  • which his Son has provided.
  • 00:13:01.020 --> 00:13:03.823
  • We're in this problem becauseof the commission of sin.
  • 00:13:03.856 --> 00:13:06.759
  • But so many people kind of givelip service to that,
  • 00:13:06.792 --> 00:13:09.595
  • but they're not consciousof that in their own life.
  • 00:13:09.628 --> 00:13:12.464
  • "Yeah, I know everybody sins,
  • 00:13:12.498 --> 00:13:13.799
  • but what does thathave to do with me?" they say.
  • 00:13:13.833 --> 00:13:17.169
  • Well, the Bible says until webecome conscious of our sin,
  • 00:13:17.203 --> 00:13:21.140
  • we will never doanything about it.
  • 00:13:21.173 --> 00:13:23.709
  • Listen, we can't do anythingto get ourselves to heaven
  • 00:13:23.742 --> 00:13:27.346
  • because there is no wayfor our sin to be forgiven
  • 00:13:27.379 --> 00:13:30.649
  • until we come to Jesus Christ.
  • 00:13:30.683 --> 00:13:33.419
  • And ladies and gentlemen,Jesus Christ is the only one
  • 00:13:33.452 --> 00:13:36.388
  • who can forgive sin.
  • 00:13:36.422 --> 00:13:37.857
  • He is the only God-manwho ever walked on this earth.
  • 00:13:37.890 --> 00:13:42.895
  • Sooner or later, every one of usbecomes aware of the fact
  • 00:13:43.596 --> 00:13:46.799
  • that we don't measure upto God's standard.
  • 00:13:46.832 --> 00:13:49.969
  • And when that moment comes,and we become conscious of sin,
  • 00:13:50.002 --> 00:13:53.672
  • then it's time for usto confess our sin.
  • 00:13:53.706 --> 00:13:57.276
  • The consciousness of sinleads us to confession.
  • 00:13:57.309 --> 00:14:00.779
  • And when we confessour sin to God,
  • 00:14:00.813 --> 00:14:03.182
  • the Bible says in that bookup in heaven
  • 00:14:03.215 --> 00:14:06.185
  • something miraculous happens.
  • 00:14:06.218 --> 00:14:08.821
  • First of all, all of your debts,all of your sins
  • 00:14:08.854 --> 00:14:12.992
  • on the left-hand sideof the column,
  • 00:14:13.025 --> 00:14:15.194
  • all of those things thatI told you ran out the door,
  • 00:14:15.227 --> 00:14:18.163
  • all of them, every one of them,the moment you ask God
  • 00:14:18.197 --> 00:14:21.767
  • to forgive you, every single oneof those things,
  • 00:14:21.800 --> 00:14:24.770
  • disappears from the ledgerin heaven, hallelujah.
  • 00:14:24.803 --> 00:14:28.807
  • Don't take thaton my word alone.
  • 00:14:31.510 --> 00:14:33.646
  • Paul wrote thisto the Colossians:
  • 00:14:33.679 --> 00:14:35.648
  • "And you, being deadin your trespasses,
  • 00:14:35.681 --> 00:14:38.317
  • he has made alive togetherwith him,
  • 00:14:38.350 --> 00:14:40.920
  • having forgiven youall trespasses,
  • 00:14:40.953 --> 00:14:43.923
  • having wiped out the handwritingof requirements
  • 00:14:43.956 --> 00:14:47.393
  • that were against us,and were contrary to us.
  • 00:14:47.426 --> 00:14:50.663
  • And he has taken itout of the way,
  • 00:14:50.696 --> 00:14:53.032
  • and nailed it to the cross."
  • 00:14:53.065 --> 00:14:56.001
  • Ladies and gentlemen,when you ask God to forgive you
  • 00:14:56.035 --> 00:14:58.737
  • for your sin, he doesn't put youin a penance program.
  • 00:14:58.771 --> 00:15:03.208
  • You don't have to do anything.
  • 00:15:03.242 --> 00:15:04.576
  • You just have to ask him.
  • 00:15:04.610 --> 00:15:05.911
  • You just have to say,"Lord Jesus,
  • 00:15:05.945 --> 00:15:07.713
  • I know I'm a sinner.
  • 00:15:07.746 --> 00:15:09.315
  • Please forgive me,"and he immediately erases
  • 00:15:09.348 --> 00:15:13.319
  • all of the sin that's in thecolumn against you in heaven.
  • 00:15:13.352 --> 00:15:16.789
  • And that's not eventhe best thing that happens.
  • 00:15:16.822 --> 00:15:20.526
  • The Bible says not only does heerase your sin but he fills up
  • 00:15:20.559 --> 00:15:26.165
  • the asset column in heavenwith all of his righteousness.
  • 00:15:26.198 --> 00:15:32.071
  • The asset column in heavengets filled up with everything
  • 00:15:32.104 --> 00:15:35.307
  • that's good about Jesus Christ.
  • 00:15:35.341 --> 00:15:38.143
  • He puts all of his righteousnessup there and all of a sudden
  • 00:15:38.177 --> 00:15:41.880
  • the registry in heavenlooks a lot different.
  • 00:15:41.914 --> 00:15:45.417
  • Now, the Bible says we areto forgive one another
  • 00:15:47.086 --> 00:15:50.889
  • because we have been forgiven.
  • 00:15:50.923 --> 00:15:53.859
  • And the picture I like to use tohelp us understand that is this.
  • 00:15:53.892 --> 00:15:58.063
  • When God forgave you,he filled up your reservoir
  • 00:15:58.097 --> 00:16:01.867
  • with forgivenessand out of the reservoir
  • 00:16:01.900 --> 00:16:04.636
  • of God's forgiveness for you,you're to go and take
  • 00:16:04.670 --> 00:16:08.007
  • what you need to forgive anybodywho has hurt you.
  • 00:16:08.040 --> 00:16:11.343
  • If God has forgiven youso freely, so wonderfully,
  • 00:16:11.377 --> 00:16:15.647
  • if he's taken awayall that was written against you
  • 00:16:15.681 --> 00:16:18.484
  • and given you everythingthat is his in righteousness,
  • 00:16:18.517 --> 00:16:21.954
  • you have everything you needto forgive someone else.
  • 00:16:21.987 --> 00:16:25.557
  • You know why?
  • 00:16:25.591 --> 00:16:27.159
  • Because you are the recipient ofGod's forgiveness for your sin.
  • 00:16:27.192 --> 00:16:31.096
  • Now here's the second point.
  • 00:16:31.130 --> 00:16:33.032
  • We should forgivebecause we are forgiven.
  • 00:16:33.065 --> 00:16:35.100
  • Now, watch this.
  • 00:16:35.134 --> 00:16:37.002
  • We should forgivejust as we are forgiven.
  • 00:16:37.036 --> 00:16:40.906
  • The Bible says:"Forgiving one another,
  • 00:16:40.939 --> 00:16:43.308
  • if anyone has a complaintagainst another;
  • 00:16:43.342 --> 00:16:46.045
  • even as Christ forgave you,you also must do."
  • 00:16:46.078 --> 00:16:52.184
  • So, how are we to forgiveone another?
  • 00:16:52.217 --> 00:16:54.720
  • Let me once and for allget rid
  • 00:16:54.753 --> 00:16:56.388
  • of this famousChristian pastime.
  • 00:16:56.422 --> 00:16:59.224
  • "Well, I'm gonna forgive you butI'll never forget what you did."
  • 00:16:59.258 --> 00:17:04.630
  • That doesn't exist inthe annals of forgiveness.
  • 00:17:04.663 --> 00:17:07.299
  • That's not forgiveness.
  • 00:17:07.332 --> 00:17:09.234
  • Forgiveness doesn't holda grudge.
  • 00:17:09.268 --> 00:17:12.404
  • It doesn't mean thatyou weren't hurt deeply,
  • 00:17:12.438 --> 00:17:14.673
  • it doesn't mean thatyou've been mistreated.
  • 00:17:14.706 --> 00:17:17.409
  • It doesn't mean that the thingthat was done against you
  • 00:17:17.443 --> 00:17:19.645
  • is as if it were not done.
  • 00:17:19.678 --> 00:17:22.214
  • God doesn't undo things.
  • 00:17:22.247 --> 00:17:24.383
  • He forgives us andwe are to forgive others
  • 00:17:24.416 --> 00:17:27.319
  • for what they have done to us.
  • 00:17:27.352 --> 00:17:29.521
  • How did Christ forgive us?
  • 00:17:29.555 --> 00:17:31.190
  • He forgave us for Christ's sake.
  • 00:17:31.223 --> 00:17:33.258
  • He forgave us unconditionally.
  • 00:17:33.292 --> 00:17:36.295
  • The Bible sayswhen God forgives,
  • 00:17:36.328 --> 00:17:38.430
  • he throws our sins intothe deepest part of the sea,
  • 00:17:38.464 --> 00:17:43.735
  • and someone said putsa sign up out there saying,
  • 00:17:43.769 --> 00:17:46.405
  • "No fishing here."
  • 00:17:46.438 --> 00:17:48.607
  • He puts our sins "as far asthe east is from the west."
  • 00:17:50.109 --> 00:17:53.979
  • He throws them behind hisback so he will never see them.
  • 00:17:54.012 --> 00:17:57.916
  • Ladies and gentlemen,when God forgives us
  • 00:17:57.950 --> 00:18:00.252
  • and we become Christiansand we accept Christ
  • 00:18:00.285 --> 00:18:02.821
  • as our personal Savior,we will never face our sin
  • 00:18:02.855 --> 00:18:07.926
  • again in judgment.
  • 00:18:07.960 --> 00:18:09.528
  • God judged them.
  • 00:18:09.561 --> 00:18:10.863
  • Someone say,"Well, Pastor Jeremiah,
  • 00:18:10.896 --> 00:18:12.598
  • I know that's true,that when I got saved,
  • 00:18:12.631 --> 00:18:15.200
  • God took care of all the sinsI had done before then,
  • 00:18:15.234 --> 00:18:18.437
  • but now that I'm a Christian,if I sin now,
  • 00:18:18.470 --> 00:18:20.706
  • then I gotta deal with it."
  • 00:18:20.739 --> 00:18:22.875
  • Well, let me ask youthis question.
  • 00:18:22.908 --> 00:18:24.309
  • How many of your sins werestill future when Christ died
  • 00:18:24.343 --> 00:18:26.979
  • on the cross?
  • 00:18:27.012 --> 00:18:28.380
  • All of them.
  • 00:18:28.413 --> 00:18:29.715
  • He forgave all of your sinand Christ doesn't see things
  • 00:18:29.748 --> 00:18:32.017
  • in past, present, and future.
  • 00:18:32.050 --> 00:18:33.585
  • He sees everythingas an eternal now.
  • 00:18:33.619 --> 00:18:35.621
  • When he said, "forgiven,"that means every sin
  • 00:18:35.654 --> 00:18:38.557
  • you've committed,you are committing,
  • 00:18:38.590 --> 00:18:40.225
  • or will commit,God has forgiven it
  • 00:18:40.259 --> 00:18:43.362
  • and you will never standjudgment for it again
  • 00:18:43.395 --> 00:18:45.664
  • if you have followedthe scriptural way.
  • 00:18:45.697 --> 00:18:49.601
  • So we are to forgivejust as Christ forgave us.
  • 00:18:49.635 --> 00:18:54.072
  • That means we don't goback and revisit the event.
  • 00:18:54.106 --> 00:18:57.476
  • We don't go back and say,"I know I forgave you yesterday
  • 00:18:57.509 --> 00:18:59.444
  • but I change my mind today."
  • 00:18:59.478 --> 00:19:03.382
  • In the Sermon on the Mountwe read these words of Jesus:
  • 00:19:03.415 --> 00:19:07.386
  • "You have heard thatit was said,
  • 00:19:07.419 --> 00:19:09.221
  • 'You shall love your neighborand hate your enemy.'
  • 00:19:09.254 --> 00:19:11.757
  • But I say to you,love your enemies,
  • 00:19:11.790 --> 00:19:13.892
  • and bless those who curse you,do good to those
  • 00:19:13.926 --> 00:19:16.728
  • who hate you,and pray for those
  • 00:19:16.762 --> 00:19:18.730
  • who spitefully use youand persecute you,
  • 00:19:18.764 --> 00:19:21.266
  • that you may be the sonsof your Father in heaven."
  • 00:19:21.300 --> 00:19:25.204
  • Now listen to me.
  • 00:19:25.237 --> 00:19:26.672
  • The Bible says if you wanna beknown as a child of God,
  • 00:19:26.705 --> 00:19:29.641
  • become a forgiving person.
  • 00:19:29.675 --> 00:19:33.045
  • That's how you become known.
  • 00:19:33.078 --> 00:19:34.546
  • As he says, "If you wanna beknown as a child of the Father,
  • 00:19:34.580 --> 00:19:36.915
  • when they see thatyou can forgive others
  • 00:19:36.949 --> 00:19:39.851
  • when they hurt you,people look at that and say,
  • 00:19:39.885 --> 00:19:42.054
  • 'Nobody does.That's a God thing.
  • 00:19:42.087 --> 00:19:44.389
  • You must be one of his children.
  • 00:19:44.423 --> 00:19:46.992
  • You must be a child of God.'"
  • 00:19:47.025 --> 00:19:49.828
  • I remember reading the storyabout Paul Myer who was
  • 00:19:49.861 --> 00:19:52.497
  • a motivational speaker.
  • 00:19:52.531 --> 00:19:54.299
  • One day he was talking aboutthe family he grew up in,
  • 00:19:54.333 --> 00:19:56.335
  • and he said,"My mom and dad
  • 00:19:56.368 --> 00:19:58.203
  • were as differentas night and day."
  • 00:19:58.237 --> 00:19:59.871
  • He said, "My father neverforgave anybody anytime
  • 00:19:59.905 --> 00:20:03.242
  • in his whole life thatI can ever remember."
  • 00:20:03.275 --> 00:20:05.644
  • He said, "If you did somethingagainst my father,
  • 00:20:05.677 --> 00:20:07.412
  • he held it against youuntil he died.
  • 00:20:07.446 --> 00:20:10.215
  • He just did not ever forgive.
  • 00:20:10.249 --> 00:20:12.050
  • He didn't believein forgiveness."
  • 00:20:12.084 --> 00:20:14.119
  • And he said, "He liveda miserable life.
  • 00:20:14.152 --> 00:20:17.889
  • He was never happy.He had no joy.
  • 00:20:17.923 --> 00:20:20.425
  • He had nothing in his lifethat was worth talking about.
  • 00:20:20.459 --> 00:20:22.928
  • On the other hand," he said,"my mother was
  • 00:20:22.961 --> 00:20:25.063
  • the most forgiving personyou would ever see.
  • 00:20:25.097 --> 00:20:27.666
  • She forgave everybody.
  • 00:20:27.699 --> 00:20:29.167
  • She never carrieda hurt around."
  • 00:20:29.201 --> 00:20:32.004
  • He said, "I'm thankfulfor my parents.
  • 00:20:32.037 --> 00:20:33.805
  • I learned a lotfrom both of them."
  • 00:20:33.839 --> 00:20:35.540
  • But he said, "One day,I had to decide which parent
  • 00:20:35.574 --> 00:20:37.509
  • I'm gonna follow and I decidedto follow my mother."
  • 00:20:37.542 --> 00:20:41.513
  • Good choice.
  • 00:20:41.546 --> 00:20:43.181
  • He said, "I learnedhow to forgive.
  • 00:20:43.215 --> 00:20:45.550
  • I no longer was stuckbetween two polar opposites.
  • 00:20:45.584 --> 00:20:48.854
  • I loved both of my parents butI decided to emulate my mom.
  • 00:20:48.887 --> 00:20:53.892
  • I watched my parents and I knewwhich one had the most joy
  • 00:20:53.925 --> 00:20:57.562
  • and the differencewas not hard to see."
  • 00:20:57.596 --> 00:21:00.899
  • When you carry a grudge,the grudge ends up
  • 00:21:00.932 --> 00:21:04.202
  • defining your life.
  • 00:21:04.236 --> 00:21:07.506
  • You remember when Peter cameto Jesus one time and he said,
  • 00:21:07.539 --> 00:21:10.876
  • "Lord, how many timesshall I forgive my brethren
  • 00:21:10.909 --> 00:21:14.313
  • if they sin against me?
  • 00:21:14.346 --> 00:21:15.981
  • Up to seven times?"
  • 00:21:16.014 --> 00:21:18.317
  • Of course, Jesus answered himwith a story.
  • 00:21:18.350 --> 00:21:21.353
  • You remember the storyhe told him?
  • 00:21:21.386 --> 00:21:22.988
  • He said there was this kingwho had some servants and
  • 00:21:23.021 --> 00:21:26.591
  • one of the servants had borrowedmoney from the king and,
  • 00:21:26.625 --> 00:21:30.095
  • in the process, he got so indebt he could never pay it back.
  • 00:21:30.128 --> 00:21:35.567
  • He owed, let's say, $1 million.
  • 00:21:35.600 --> 00:21:38.003
  • One of the king's servants foundhim and brought him to the king.
  • 00:21:38.036 --> 00:21:41.873
  • And he couldn't pay it.
  • 00:21:41.907 --> 00:21:44.009
  • And the king said he was gonnathrow him in prison along
  • 00:21:44.042 --> 00:21:46.278
  • with his wife and children untilhe could pay every last debt.
  • 00:21:46.311 --> 00:21:50.615
  • The Bible says that the servantgot down on his knees
  • 00:21:50.649 --> 00:21:52.784
  • and he begged andhe cried and he said,
  • 00:21:52.818 --> 00:21:54.553
  • "Please don't do that to me."
  • 00:21:54.586 --> 00:21:56.188
  • He says, "Give me some time,be patient with me,
  • 00:21:56.221 --> 00:21:58.223
  • and I will pay you everything."
  • 00:21:58.256 --> 00:22:01.126
  • And the king was so takenwith the earnestness
  • 00:22:01.159 --> 00:22:03.228
  • of this man's pleathat the Bible says
  • 00:22:03.261 --> 00:22:05.831
  • the king forgave him everythingthat he owed.
  • 00:22:05.864 --> 00:22:10.869
  • Now, I wish the storyended there, don't you?
  • 00:22:10.902 --> 00:22:14.139
  • But it doesn't end therebecause that servant went out
  • 00:22:14.172 --> 00:22:17.676
  • from the presence of the kingand he found another servant
  • 00:22:17.709 --> 00:22:20.512
  • who owed him $200and he grabbed him
  • 00:22:20.545 --> 00:22:25.717
  • by the throat and demandedinstant payment.
  • 00:22:25.751 --> 00:22:29.955
  • His fellow servants fell downbefore him and begged
  • 00:22:29.988 --> 00:22:32.524
  • for a little more time.
  • 00:22:32.557 --> 00:22:34.559
  • "Be patient with me,"said this servant,
  • 00:22:34.593 --> 00:22:36.328
  • "and I will pay it."
  • 00:22:36.361 --> 00:22:37.929
  • But the creditor who had beenforgiven all this huge amount
  • 00:22:37.963 --> 00:22:41.733
  • of money would not listen andsome of the other servants
  • 00:22:41.767 --> 00:22:45.337
  • saw that and it ticked them off.
  • 00:22:45.370 --> 00:22:49.107
  • And they went and gotthis unforgiving servant
  • 00:22:49.141 --> 00:22:51.977
  • and brought him backto the king and told the king
  • 00:22:52.010 --> 00:22:55.814
  • what he had done and howhe had been totally unforgiving
  • 00:22:55.847 --> 00:22:59.317
  • after he himself had beenforgiven so much.
  • 00:22:59.351 --> 00:23:02.954
  • "And the king said this:'You evil servant!
  • 00:23:02.988 --> 00:23:06.491
  • I forgave you that tremendousdebt 'cause you pleaded with me.
  • 00:23:06.525 --> 00:23:10.128
  • Shouldn't you have mercyon your fellow servant,
  • 00:23:10.162 --> 00:23:12.697
  • just as I had mercy on you?'
  • 00:23:12.731 --> 00:23:15.767
  • And the angry king sent the manto prison to be tortured
  • 00:23:15.801 --> 00:23:18.503
  • 'til he had paidhis entire debt."
  • 00:23:18.537 --> 00:23:21.339
  • And then Jesus gave us theapplication with these words:
  • 00:23:21.373 --> 00:23:24.509
  • "That's what my heavenly Fatherwill do to you if you refuse
  • 00:23:24.543 --> 00:23:28.380
  • to forgive your brothersand sisters from your heart."
  • 00:23:28.413 --> 00:23:32.317
  • In other words, God is saying,"I have forgiven you everything,
  • 00:23:32.350 --> 00:23:36.087
  • all of your sins that you haveever committed:
  • 00:23:36.121 --> 00:23:38.723
  • omission sins, commission sins,disposition sins, past sins,
  • 00:23:38.757 --> 00:23:43.228
  • present sins, future sins.
  • 00:23:43.261 --> 00:23:45.130
  • All forgiven.
  • 00:23:45.163 --> 00:23:47.532
  • And you won't forgiveyour brother
  • 00:23:47.566 --> 00:23:50.202
  • because he did somethingyou didn't like?"
  • 00:23:50.235 --> 00:23:54.072
  • Let me ask you what couldanybody do that would total
  • 00:23:54.105 --> 00:23:57.943
  • the amount of sin thatwe accumulate in one life
  • 00:23:57.976 --> 00:24:01.713
  • for which we have beenfully forgiven?
  • 00:24:01.746 --> 00:24:04.149
  • Do you get it?
  • 00:24:04.182 --> 00:24:05.484
  • We forgive othersout of the forgiveness
  • 00:24:05.517 --> 00:24:07.419
  • which we ourselveshave received.
  • 00:24:07.452 --> 00:24:10.589
  • Out of that reservoirof God's forgiving us,
  • 00:24:10.622 --> 00:24:13.758
  • we reach down and we findthe forgiveness we need
  • 00:24:13.792 --> 00:24:19.431
  • to forgive another person.
  • 00:24:19.464 --> 00:24:23.068
  • Let me ask you something.
  • 00:24:23.101 --> 00:24:24.669
  • Have you been forgivenby Jesus Christ?
  • 00:24:24.703 --> 00:24:26.838
  • Are your sins nailedto the cross?
  • 00:24:26.872 --> 00:24:30.108
  • I know people can inflict harmon us.
  • 00:24:30.141 --> 00:24:33.345
  • I'm not minimizing the hurtfulnature of abuse we can face,
  • 00:24:33.378 --> 00:24:37.682
  • but I don't want to minimizethe power of God's grace either.
  • 00:24:37.716 --> 00:24:42.187
