In a world tempted to hate and ostracize, forgiveness can be scandalous. Jesus forgave a man’s sins and what was the response? Some in the room thought forgiveness was blasphemy. This week, we are exploring the radical forgiveness.
This Lenten season, our sermon series, “In God’s Name,” examines the ways we describe God and God’s actions in the world. By Good Friday, Jesus will be charged with blasphemy for announcing and living out God’s liberation for the world. As we faithfully follow God, we should not be surprised that others, particularly other Christians, might consider our devotion to be blasphemy too. This Lent, join us in committing to more faithfully following our liberating God.
Sermon preached by Pastor Dallas Flippin on Sunday, March 7, 2021 at the First Baptist Church of Jackson, MI.
