The Forgiving King

July 24, 2022 Speaker: Joel Sutton Series: Unexpected Twist

Scripture: Matthew 18:21–35

The Law of Lamech


Forgiveness requires an …

…. Accurate view of ourselves.

…. Accurate view of the offender.

…. Accurate view of God.


What forgiveness is not:

  • Forgiveness is not forgetting
  • Forgiveness is not excusing.
  • Forgiveness is not relieving the person of responsibility.
  • Forgiveness is not reconciling.


Forgiveness is a decision to reverse the Law of Lamech and trust God’s justice.


Take Home Idea:  If you are a forgiven one, you must also be a forgiving one.
