Four friends meet over coffee at church. Meant to be a lead in into a sermon or a devotion written by you!

ďThe Forgiveness We Really NeedĒ


Estelle: Say, Julie, how did things go with you and your sister last week?

Julie: Well, we still arenít speaking to one another.

Leon: Donít you think you should do something about that? Itís not right to hold a grudge.

Julie: I did try to do something about it. I went to her house and told her I was sorry if I had done anything to cause the rift between us.

Vaughn: Iím proud of you Julie. But, why arenít you speaking now? Did she refuse to forgive you?

Julie: Not exactly. She told me she forgave me.

Estelle: That must have made you feel a lot better.

Julie: Actually, it ticked me off. Where does she come from saying she forgives me? What about her part in the argument? It wasnít all my fault.

Leon: I hate to say this Julie, but if you really listen to what you are saying it sounds to me like you wanted her to say that it was ok, and that you hadnít done anything wrong. For her to offer forgiveness made you face your true sinful self.

Estelle: I think thatís what we want to hear Jesus say to us, too. ďOh, thatís alright. No big deal.Ē

Leon: Sure, thatís what weíd like to hear, but to Jesus sin is a big deal.

Vaughn: Big enough that He had to suffer and die to rescue us from Godís anger towards us.

Julie: So I wasnít really sorry that I hurt my sister, was I? I just wanted to put my selfishness behind me and move on without having to see my spiteful behavior towards her.

Leon: We donít always recognize it, but our greatest need in life is to see our sin for what it is, and then rejoice in Godís forgiveness in Jesus Christ.








If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
