Forgiveness #2 – What does the Bible say about forgiveness? #2

Reading: Matthew 5:41-48, Psalm 23:1-3
Preacher: Rev Kevin Kim

This week, Kevin will continue to look at Matthew chapter 5. Starting with v 41 (go with them two miles), Kevin will explain what v 41 might mean to us in terms of ‘forgiveness’ and ‘Christian perfection’. Kevin will then relate the concept of ‘Love for Enemies’ in v 43-48 with the theme of ‘forgiveness’. This chapter asks the Christian to be perfect, and as the last measurement for Christian perfection, ‘love your enemies’ is mentioned. We have to love and forgive our enemies to be able to be part of God’s family. Kevin will bring a remarkable story of forgiveness of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). The TRC was created by Nelson Mandela’s Government of National Unity in 1995 to help South Africans come to terms with their extremely troubled past. It was established to investigate the violations that took place between 1960 and 1994, to provide support and reparation to victims and their families, and to compile a full and objective record of the effects of apartheid on South African society. For instance, take the Craddock – the police ambushed their car, killed them in the most gruesome manner, set their car alight. When, at a TRC hearing, the teenage daughter of one of the victims was asked: would you be able to forgive the people who did this to you and your family? She answered, “We would like to forgive, but we would just like to know who to forgive.”

Forgiveness #1 – What does the Bible say about forgiveness?

Reading: Matthew 5:38-48, 18:21,22
Teaching Coordinator: Rev Kevin Kim

Forgiveness #1 – What does the Bible say about forgiveness?

Kevin is starting a new series of ‘forgiveness’ this Sunday. We read the concept of ‘forgive’ in the Bible many times. The word ‘forgive’ appears in the KJV (95 times), ESV (109) and CEV (206) respectively, but we would think a theme of ‘forgiveness’ can be found in many other verses like “Come now, let us settle the matter,’ says the Lord. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.’” — Isaiah 1:18. Kevin will bring up many biblical verses about ‘forgiveness’ first and then focus on how we achieve Christian Perfection (v 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.) The Greek word (teleioi) used here for ‘being perfect’ is about achieving your goals and being mature. This is part of God’s attributes. In Matthew 5:38-47, Jesus talks about how a ‘mature/perfect’ person should behave. Following the messages ‘key person’ and ‘helper’s high’, Kevin would like to say that ‘forgiveness’ is how you achieve and practice the essence of Christianity.
