Each Sunday in this Lenten season we have been presented with the central truth of Scripture, Jesus is the world’s Savior, with a slightly different focus. Today we highlight this key truth by remembering that through his painful suffering and death, Jesus has won forgiveness and eternal life for all.
Christ's Church has an ongoing mission, and that mission is to freely offer God's forgiveness. After speaking words of rebuke, it is tempting to hold a grudge or seek revenge. However, just as we have been freely forgiven, Jesus calls us to freely forgive.
