9. Forgiven People Forgive People (Colossians 3:11-14)

March 6, 2016 Speaker: Pastor Bill Series: Colossians

Passage: Colossians 3:11–14

Discipleship Group Primer


The Point:

Forgiven people forgive people.


[When you forgive], you are absorbing the debt, taking the cost of it completely on yourself instead of taking it out of the other person. It hurts terribly. Many people would say it feels like a kind of death. Yes, but it is a death that leads to resurrection instead of the lifelong living death of bitterness and cynicism. (Tim Keller, The Reason for God)
