1. What Does It Say?

“Forgive/Forgiven”, “Debts/Debtors” – We are asking God for forgiveness. We also forgive our debtors. What is going on when we forgive someone?

2. What Is the Backstory?

Jesus is preaching in the Sermon on the Mount – a primer to a completely different way of life in the Kingdom of God.

This verse has a legal background – Deuteronomy 15:2. Debt must be address. We are in a deficit. And the Lord’s release has been proclaimed.

3. What Does It Mean?

This prayer is all about connecting with God – and prayer, confession and forgiveness is part of that connection. God’s holiness cannot endorse our sinfulness – we must address our sin.

God’s abundance makes stringent economic pressure on others inappropriate.

4. What Does It Mean for Me?

Do we live with a sense of superiority over others? This is fundamentally unwise. If you can’t forgive others, you have not experienced forgiveness.

(Drew also explains what forgiveness is *not*)
