Forgiven to Forgive



By pointing to the parables and teachings of Jesus, Grant Partrick urges listeners to forgive others out of a grateful inclination, knowing that they have been forgiven an incomparable debt.

Key Takeaway

Forgive out of gratitude, not obligation, knowing that you have been forgiven an incomparable debt.

  1. We forgive because we have been forgiven.
  2. Our motivation for forgiving others is not simply personal freedom but rather gospel alignment and expansion.
  3. When it comes to forgiveness, it’s always your move.
  4. Forgiveness is a promise, not a feeling.


"Forgiveness is a test of our belief and our understanding of the Gospel."

Tim Keller
