Jesus Forgives: This sermon is part of The Gospel According to Mark series. In his first confrontation with religious leaders, while healing a paralyzed man, Jesus demonstrates that he has the authority to forgive sin. Why do we need forgiveness? Sin separates us from God and from each other. Forgiveness heals and restores relationships. What is forgiveness? Forgiveness isn’t forgetting or approving what happened, or immediately trusting. Forgiveness means giving up your right to make someone pay. On the cross, Jesus paid for the sins of the world. Through faith in Jesus, we can be forgiven and have the power to forgive those who have sinned against us.
