Sermon 03 Nov 2019

True forgiveness by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  Zacchaeus was a chief tax collector.  He had heard about Jesus, but that was not enough: he wanted to see Him.  He prepared, he rose above the noisy crowd, and Jesus changed his heart forever.  He received forgiveness that day, true forgiveness.

If you have a wrong understanding of forgiveness, you have a wrong understanding of the Gospel.
