Forgiving and Forgiven

FF Bible Church sermon series--How Am I Supposed to Pray Lord's Prayer

Are Unforgiving People Forgiven?

In his instructions on prayer in the so-called "Lord's Prayer" passage of Matthew 6, Jesus gives his disciples six distinct petitions that are based on the priorities of God, the fifth of which is a request for the forgiveness of sins (see verse 12). However, attached to that request is an implicit warning—one which is explicitly spelled out in verses 14–15—to the effect that our true is spiritual condition is directly related to whether or not we are forgiving others. Or, in simpler terms, forgiving people are forgiven people, but unforgiving people are not.
