Sermon Points: Christian brotherhood is a covenanted love relationship that calls me to honor my brother as someone made in God’s image. This love relationship causes me to treat him like Jesus treats me and allows me to enjoy fellowship with him in peace, yet at the same time, it empowers me to endure suffering and loss for the greater good of God’s people.

Sermon Points: 1. To forgive means to pardon or remove the debt earned by the person who has sinned against me. 2. Real forgiveness confronts the issue by telling the truth about what the offense is and the damage it has caused while also extending grace. 3. Forgiveness is not optional; it's commanded. 4. Forgiveness is not easy. 5. Forgiveness cannot be earned; it must be granted. 6. You cannot offer someone forgiveness if you are not willing to tell someone their offense. (Matthew18: 15-20)
