Ephesians 1: 7-8
The Forgiveness of the Saints

With a couple weeks until Easter, we want to take the time to refocus our attention on our relationship with Jesus Christ; to deepen our love for Him and more fully appreciate His death, burial, and resurrection.

We will deal with four disciplines that mark the Christian life – Prayer, Giving, Forgiveness, and Fasting.

Forgiveness is essential to our salvation, receiving Christ’s work of redemption through faith.  Forgiveness is also part of our sanctification, growing in Christ as we forgive others.

The Christian doctrine of forgiveness is that God has taken away the sentence of condemnation for our sins through the death of Jesus Christ on our behalf and no longer counts us as guilty.
