Bible Study Topic: Forgiveness

Sometimes, forgiving others can be hard. Especially when that person continues to do the same thing over and over again. But what does God think about forgiveness? The follow Being study will show you why forgiveness is always key.


God’s Word: Ephesians 4:32

"And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you."

Romans 12:18

"If it is possible, as much as it depends on you, live peaceably with all men as I have commanded you."


Think About It:

Q: What is forgiveness?
A: Forgiveness is wiping the slate clean and forgetting about what was done.

Q: Why do we forgive?
A: We forgive because God forgave us. AND In obedience to God.

Q:Everyone had sinned, and God forgave us; so why shouldn't we forgive others?
A: What makes it hard to forgive others.


Conclusion:
I have a friend who didn't live in a Christian home, so I invited her to church. She started coming regularly, but her parents still didn't. One week she came and I was late, and I walked in on her making out with a guy from my church. I was deeply hurt and I didn't want to talk to her. After a couple of days I decided to have a conversation with her. I told her that it hurt me to see her do something like that, especially in the house of God. She told me that she wouldn't do it anymore because she didn't want to hurt me. A few months went by and nothing happened. Then one night I wasn't at church. I got a text message telling me that she did it again. I was deeply hurt this time to the point of getting mad. I wouldn't talk to her, and I wouldn't look at her; the only time I would look at her, it was to give her a look. Every single one of our friends made sure they kept us apart. After two weeks of fighting, I talked to her, well more like yelled at her. After that I began to read my Bible and do my Bible study and the topic was forgiveness. I immediately knew what was happening. God was telling me to forgive her. I argued with Him, and finally I forgave her. I felt like God is trying to use me to help her in her Christian walk and that in order to do that I had to forgive her.


Closing Prayer:
Lord, I pray that You would help me forgive (Insert name here) I know that I'm being used in their life to guide them to You. I love You, Lord, amen.

Forgiveness is hard
by: Heather

Forgiving others really can be hard. Especially when we feel like we are justified in our anger. That first verse you shared, really brings forgiveness home for me. Forgiving as Christ forgave us. That's some serious forgiveness.
