Forgiveness

Forgiving Means Forgetting

“Forgive and forget.” Or so we’re told. So often we believe that forgiving means forgetting, and since forgetting about the sin and hurt someone has caused us is darn near impossible, we give up and assume we just can’t forgive. But biblical forgiveness is not forgetting, as we see in the final message in our series, Lies Christians Swallow.

Healthy or Sick?

Pastor Andy continues our series through the Gospel of Mark, Who Is This Man?  In Mark 2:13-17, Jesus once again breaks the rules.  This time, He calls Levi, a tax collector, to follow Him, and He even goes to Levi's house to eat with other tax collectors and sinners.  How could Jesus, a good moral teacher, a religious leader, a respectable man associate with "those kind of people?"

Covenant Love

Pastor Alex brings the story of Hosea and Gomer.  God told Hosea to marry an unfaithful woman, named Gomer, as a living parable and a symbol of the ancient Isrealites' unfaithfulness to God.  In spite of her adultery, Hosea forgave her and redeemed her and restored their relationship.  In the same way, God loves us unconditionally–even when we are faithless, He is faithful.  God loves us, God loves you, with a never-stopping, unbreakable, eternal covenant love.
