Faith To Heal From Offenses – Pastor Claude Houde – Times Square Church – 08.11.2019

Forgiveness

Offenses will come, and we are living in a generation that is particularly quick to be offended. Since this is the case, what will we do when we are offended or when we offend others? We must pray, forgive, ask for forgiveness, seek the Lord, and grow in the faith. If we do not forgive the offenses against us, then at minimum our witness can be depleted as we succumb to the trap and temptation of unforgiveness and bitterness. So many of us fall prey to this cycle in our families, marriages, businesses, and ministries. If there is an overriding offense, then any attempt to press forward without the release of forgiveness will almost certainly fail. Brothers and sisters, let’s identify an offense we are harboring as well as a offense that someone is harboring against and deal with both today!

Then He said to the disciples, “It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.”

Luke 17:1-4

Podcast: On the Objective – We Must Abandon Doubtful Disputations – Steven Menking – 08.03.2019

2019.08.03

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles in partnership with Reliance! This is the hour for all of us to put aside and seek forgiveness for our tendency to gossip, to bicker, to quarrel, and to castigate our brothers and sisters based on minor items that are not foundational. We must seek the Lord and refrain from our ongoing posture of unforgiveness. The Word of God is plain about what truly matters and what is less important, but in our generation we have relied on traditions of men rather than on the tenets of the Bible. Prayerfully, I hope that this message will encourage us to remain faithful to the whole counsel of God and to avoid the tenacious trap of looking down on other believers. This generation has lost the understanding of proper judgment, and only the Holy Spirit can restore it! The scriptures from this message are found in Proverbs 26 and Romans 14.

Remember The Prisoners – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 04.28.2019

HEll

Jesus tells us to love our enemies. This requires supernatural strength and faith. Moreover, it requires a heavenly perspective. The enemies of the cross are in a merciless prison. Just because some of the cells in this prison have an appearance of comfort only makes the incarceration all the more insidious. We are called to a love that stretches so far beyond our abilities that in our own mind we can’t even conceptualize it. God will give us the faith that we need to fulfill this commandment. It doesn’t mean we roll over. It doesn’t mean we don’t stand for God. It doesn’t mean we yield the battlefield to the enemy. It means we know why we are called into this spiritual battle. The enemies of the Lord are still in the prisons that we ourselves were once in. The cross of Christ is available for all. Many will refuse the free gift of salvation, but when we remember the prisoners it should motive us to get our strength exclusively from God.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

Matthew 5:43-48

One On One – Pastor Tim Dilena – Times Square Church – 03.31.2019

Alabaster

Much of the words of Jesus that we treasure so dearly are the product of one on one conversations. It is so critical for us to spend time with the Lord as well as each other one on one. So how do we do this? Ask questions of other people. Pay attention to their answers. Ask follow up questions. Find an opportunity for prayer. If we focus on being people who others want to communicate with then there will be more opportunities for us to communicate with others. Listening will allow us to avoid defaulting to cliches and will provide room for God to enter the situation. This powerful message focuses on a one on one conversation Jesus had with a sinful woman in front of others at a dinner. We must trust God with everything, be willing to press in to Him, and to treasure a word from the Lord for us. Take the time to get one on one with Jesus today!

Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat. And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil. Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke to himself, saying, “This Man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is who is touching Him, for she is a sinner.”

And Jesus answered and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.”

So he said, “Teacher, say it.”

“There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him more?”

Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one whom he forgave more.”

And He said to him, “You have rightly judged.” Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil. Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”

Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”

And those who sat at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”

Then He said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.”

Luke 7:36-50

Podcast: On the Objective – Don’t Go Another Moment Without Forgiveness – Steven Menking – 01.14.2019

2019.01.14

Forgiveness is absolutely essential to the walk of any Christian. It is by the grace of God and the sacrifice of the cross that we are able to receive eternal forgiveness for sins. Jesus clearly instructs us through parables and directly that forgiveness towards one another is not optional. Harboring unforgiveness, bitterness, and anger leaves a door for the enemy to march through and harms our effectiveness for the Kingdom of God and our testimonies. I pray that the Holy Spirit would bring something or someone to mind that you need to ask forgiveness from or provide forgiveness to during this broadcast. Take that step toward forgiveness and watch what God will do! We read through Psalm 51 as well as portions of Matthew 18, 1 Peter 4, and Matthew 5.

I’m Hurt, So What Do I Do Now? – Pastor Tim Dilena – Times Square Church – 08.05.2018

JesusHeals

Forgive me Father for the inability to forgive! We need the power from God to forgive so that we can rescue our future. The past is done, but we need to make the right choices particularly in resolving conflicts. We need more skills in communication, but ultimately the nature of dealing with conflict and offense comes from the heart. If we don’t forgive then we will be unable to move forward. The closer people are to us the more it hurts when people offend and trespass against us. Any hurt that we allow to persist in our lives will lead to bitterness. Do not cover your hurts today, but deal with them according to scripture. Please press in to God for the faith to forgive one another. If we do not, then we will miss out on the fruit that God wants to bring about through our lives. Jesus help us to forgive as you forgave us!

The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger,
And his glory is to overlook a transgression.

Proverbs 19:11

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Forgiveness Is An Indispensable Virtue

Forgiveness

In our generation we are experiencing a heartbreaking lack of forgiveness. The biological, emotional, psychological, and spiritual implications of forgiveness make it a virtuous trait that is absolutely indispensable. Perhaps we are experiencing this deficit as a society because we have overlooked the importance of forgiveness by reducing it to platitudes. Maybe there is something truly fundamental about this virtue that, if we bother to look into it, will aid us greatly in reclaiming, at least in some part, the unity that we appear to have lost.

Join us as we investigate the importance and mechanics of forgiveness. How have we all been touched by the pain of unforgiveness from others? Are we conscious of our own lack of forgiveness? What prevents us from forgiving? What ramifications does not prioritizing forgiveness entail?
