When Forgiveness is Not Enough—Junk Bonds, Part 3

Jesus commanded his followers to forgive people, even for repeated offenses. But what then? What if people aren’t looking for forgiveness? What if they aren’t sorry, and the offense wasn’t an accident, but deliberate? What should we do when forgiveness isn’t enough? Pastor Luke preaches from 1 Samuel 24:1–22 in “When Forgiveness Is Not Enough,” the concluding message in his series “Junk Bonds: Some Debts Can’t Be Repaid.”

We’ve seen that forgiving makes sense whether or not you’re a Christian. But it’s optional. Unless you’re a follower of Jesus; then it’s required. Why is forgiveness so important for Christians? What if we’ve tried to forgive someone and it’s just too difficult? What if we managed to forgive them, and then they did the same thing again? Pastor Luke looks at Matthew 18:21–35 in “Forgiving Repeat Offenders,” part 2 of his 3-part series “Junk Bonds: Some Debts Can’t Be Repaid.”

What does Jesus teach us about forgiveness? Pastor Luke looks at Mark 2:1–12 in “How to Forgive Better,” the first message in a new series “Junk Bonds: Some Debts Can’t Be Repaid.”
