For April 4, 2020
INSTEAD OF A WEDNESDAY WARMUP AUDIO RECORDING, WOULD YOU PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING, AND RESPOND TO ANY OF THESE BY EMAIL, IF YOU'D LIKE BY THIS FRIDAY?
In preparation for our conversation, please READ the following passages:
Luke 23:34 (NIV): “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
• How can we say the same thing to the jerks in our lives when they know exactly what they’re doing? How do we forgive them? Do we have to forgive them? They’re not asking for forgiveness. Does that get me off the hook? If they don’t want forgiveness from me, then obviously I’m under no obligation to grant them forgiveness, right?
Luke 6:27, 28 (NIV) 27 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”
• Did Jesus allow people to walk all over him? How did Jesus demonstrate a genuine love for his enemies?
I sure can't wait to interact with you! See you soon!
Every Wednesday morning Pastor Roy Ice releases an audio podcast called The Bible Lab Wednesday Warmup. These are 5-10 minute messages that pose the major question and topic of the coming study session.
Listen on your drive to work or your daily walk. Then pray, research and come prepared to share with the group.
