What Did Jesus Say About Forgiveness?

Series: But What Did Jesus Say About It?

Stuart Briscoe

How would you feel if someone cancelled all your debt right now? Mortgage, car payments, student loans, hospital bills—all of it, washed clean. You'd be pretty relieved, right? And you'd probably be pretty expressive and exuberant when it comes to showing your gratitude. 

Now if I tell you that Jesus has cancelled all your sin debt, are you feeling as grateful? The truth is that we can't fully understand forgiveness until we understand our sin—what needs to be forgiven! When Jesus joined Simon the Pharisee for a meal, He encountered a woman of "doubtful reputation" who understood just how much sin debt she had and used her tears and hair to wipe Jesus' feet as a way to show her gratitude for all the forgiveness she was receiving. 

In this message, Stuart Briscoe walks us through Jesus' dinner with Simon and the parable of the two debtors, and encourages us to consider what sins we might be holding onto.

Scripture: Luke 7:36 - 7:50
