Lord's Day 51 Heidelberg Catechism

Lord's Day 51

Scripture Readings: Matthew 18:15-35; Luke 15:11-32; Ephesians 4:30-5:2

Q. 126.Which is the fifth petition?

A."And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors"; that is, be pleased for the sake of Christ's blood, not to impute to us poor sinners, our transgressions, nor that depravity, which always cleaves to us; even as we feel this evidence of thy grace in us, that it is our firm resolution from the heart to forgive our neighbour.

For reflection:
What is standing in your way of forgiving your neighbor who has wronged you?
