Striving in Forgiveness

The subject of forgiveness involves so much more than the acceptance of a simple apology. In fact, forgiveness is a three-way action and response between ourselves, God, and other people that involves five key steps. Listen as Pastor John begins this message by sharing his own story of hope-crushing betrayal before offering answers to some of the deepest questions regarding forgiveness - questions like; How do I know if God has forgiven me? Can God forgive me if other people have not? Does forgiving someone mean that I have to reconcile with them even if I am not comfortable with that person in my life? Why is it important to ask for forgiveness from God and others and how do I learn to forgive myself?
