When Jesus Forgives but the World Doesn’t

Episode 637 Show Notes 

From the Show

By faith in Jesus Christ, you have been forgiven and your record of debt has been nailed to the cross. Other people might remind you of sins that you have done and put that burden back on you, but that is why we must go back to the word of God and see what Christ has said.

——Adriel Sanchez

When Jesus Forgives but the World Doesn’t

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. I am a convicted felon. I know that Jesus has forgiven me for my past sins, but even after paying my due to society, it seems that I am forever marked by my past. How can I find rest when every day society reminds me of my past sins?

2. What is Lent, and why do some churches practice it and others do not?

3. When did Israelites become Hebrews?

4. How do I deal with regret? Sometimes it can feel overwhelming and prevent me from seeking the Lord.
