118 Grace’s Gold Standard

In Episode 118, we talk about what it means to apply grace in difficult situations when someone does a heinous or unacceptable action and then they plead for grace. Are we supposed to forgive them and what do we need to do in those types of situations?

Although God is always eager to forgive us, He asks that we repent and forgive others as prerequisites for forgiveness. In certain cases, repentance and atonement may also be necessary. How could we pray the way Jesus teaches us if we don't want to forgive? How could we ask God to forgive us if we hold grudges or let resentment drag us down?

Let's find out and go bigger, better, and deeper in God's word!
