KONNECT – Put Others First, Week 4
The Point: God’s Love Forgives
Rehearse The Verse: Colossians 3:13 NLT. … Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
When others hurt you, you choose to sin, or you get in a fight, it makes your heart sick. If you don’t ask for God’s forgiveness, and you choose not to forgive others, you get frozen in that sickness and you can’t show God’s love AT ALL! That’s definitely not what God wants for you!
When we choose to follow Jesus, God heals our broken hearts so we can share His love with others. How can you show others that God’s love forgives?
Answers will vary. Forgive others, even when they don’t ask you to forgive them, be kind to those who have hurt you, choose not to bring up the old wrong choices people have made, etc.
When others hurt us, sometimes it’s really hard to forgive them. What can you do if someone hurts you this week and you REALLY don’t want to forgive them?
Answers will vary. Talk to God about it, pray God will do good things for them, ask God to help you forgive them, talk to a friend that will help you forgive them, remember that God forgave you first, etc.
Jesus, thank You for healing our broken hearts so that we can love others the way You do. Please teach us how to forgive every time we get hurt or feel angry so that others will know what Your love is like. In Jesus’ name, amen
