This book, “Forgiveness Formula: Finding Lasting Freedom in Christ,” has been a great asset for me. I am in charge of making flyers for prayer groups in my youth group. They each have a topic like “Forgiving yourself,” “Forgiving Others,” When Bad things Happen,” etc. I’ve used this book for ideas for these, and the response has been really great!
The small groups are able to go deeper and talk about things that they’re actually struggling with instead of talking about sport practices or upcoming tests. A lot of the kids are holding bitterness towards other people or themselves because they don’t think they can be good enough for God’s forgiveness. Bit by bit, the stories in this book are helping to break down barriers that they’ve built. God is really using it to help them gain wisdom and understanding in what forgiveness is really about.
It’s awesome because the stuff in this book is real. It makes us examine our hearts and determine if we’re really living for Christ or for someone or something else.
