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.

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.
