Intro - Forgiveness is as necessary to salvation as repentance. Jesus said, "unless you repent you will perish."

          And He also said, "If you do not forgive men, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions" (sins).  Jesus spoke this parable to teach us about forgiveness.

I. The King (Jesus) hold everyone accountable for what they owe.

            A. We owe a debt for sin, death is the payment for sin. Rom.6:23

            B. God will hold all of us accountable. Rom.14:11-12, 1Pet.4:3-5, Rev.20:12

            C. The servant begs for mercy.  Mercy is not getting what you deserve, grace is getting what you don't deserve.

II. The King showed mercy and grace to him.

            A. The King forgave his debt and set him free. Rom.8:1, 1Thess.5:9, Jn.8:32, 14:6, 8:36, Rom.4:8

            B. The slave refused to do the same.

III. We should forgive the way Jesus forgave us.

            A. He forgave the debt without being asked. Rom.8:3, 1Jn.2:2, 1Jn.4:10

            B. He set him free. Jesus frees you from sin and gives you eternal life. 1Jn.1:9, Rom.6:23

            C. You should treat others the way Jesus has treated you. Eph.4:32 (33)

Con - Are you forgiving others the way Jesus has forgiven you?
