Authority to Forgive

Refuge Church Atlanta http://www.refugechurchatl.com

Luke 5:17-26

“Unforgiveness is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” So often we refuse to forgive because we need the offending party to prove they’re sorry, or that they’ve changed. We think forgiveness needs to be earned. But what Jesus shows us in healing the paralytic is that God’s forgiveness rests on His authority not our ability. Not your ability to get your life together enough, or your inability to earn anything from God. Neither affects God’s forgiveness through Jesus Christ!
