What’s the Point: Forgiveness

Text: John 21:15-17

Forgiveness is hard. But Christians have the best role model imaginable in the person of Jesus.  What’s the point of forgiveness if it doesn’t happen authentically enough for relationships to grow and thrive from that point forward? Peter learns that forgiveness from Jesus comes with a bonus: a reinstated measure of trust that helps to heal the relationship. What does this mean for us as people who need to both give and receive forgiveness?
