Forgive in Order to be Forgiven? (LD 51; Matthew 6:14,15) | 2012 Catechism Sermons

Mar 12, 2013

One of the pillars of our faith is that we believe in Grace alone. This means that we receive grace without doing anything to deserve this grace. So, why does Matthew make it sound like our forgiveness is conditional? Matthew tells us that if we do not forgive then the Lord will not forgive us. Does this mean that for every sin we forgive then the Lord forgives one of our sins? If you are curious about these questions please stay tuned to our sermon titled, “Forgive in order to be Forgiven?”
