UntitledToday as we kick off our “God on Film” message series, we delve right in to
a very serious topic – revenge. Revenge is serious, because in reality, it
represents a failure to forgive. In view of Scripture’s teaching
concerning forgiveness it seems that the stubborn, persistent refusal to
forgive others is evidence of a blind and hardened heart which lacks a real
understanding of and faith in God’s forgiveness in Christ (from the
LCMS.org FAQ’s). For us to understand revenge then, we must understand
forgiveness. As we prepare ourselves for worship today, may we ask God to
prepare our hearts to understand the depth and breadth of His forgiveness
for us in Christ – and to receive that forgiveness of sins in our sharing
of the Lord’s Supper today.
