Power to Forgive

Sunday, July 1, 2012| Message byEric Ludy
This may not be a message that you want to listen to, but this is a message that you must listen to. Unforgiveness, bitterness, and resentment are running roughshod over the Church of Jesus Christ today. These three devouring beasts are crippling our growth and tainting our witness. But there is a power to forgive that the Church must return to. It's a God- imparted impetus and ability to let go of offenses and to forgive as Christ Jesus Himself forgave. And this power is not found in human grit, willpower, resolve, and determination. It's found in Christ and is available to all who would believe.
