Forgiveness: How Do I Forgive?

Colossians 3:12–15

This week, Pastor David continued the sermon series on Forgiveness with some examples of how to approach forgiving someone. He reminded us to:

  1. Start With Your Heart In Prayer
  2. Relinquish The Desire To Get Even
  3. Pursue Honest Conversations
  4. Live In The Present, Not Bound To The Past


  • Just like the “stuffed drawers” we have in our homes, most of us have a “drawer” in our soul where we have bitterness, grudges, misunderstandings, frustrations, and unforgiveness that needs to be opened and sorted through. What bitterness, grudges and/or unforgiveness do you find in your life that needs to be addressed?
  • Of the four principles above, which are the most difficult for you and why? hich one of those will you pursue this week?
  • Pastor David shared that we will never be able to forgive a person who we are not willing to pray for consistently. Who is the person you to need to pray for so, in time, you can forgive them?
  • Does knowing that you can forgive someone without trusting them encourage you or give you hope? Explain.
