Video – What About Forgiveness and Repentance in Luke 17:3?

Forgiveness coming before repentance sounds good, but what about Luke 17:3?  Jesus said, “So watch yourselves.  If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him.”  Pastor Tim explains that this was written in relation to those who are a part of the family of God.  And in light of Hebrews 6:4-6, it is apparent that when a Christian falls into sin it is a serious thing , so serious in fact that it is possible that they cannot be brought back to repentance.  Therefore, it’s not that you shouldn’t offer forgiveness to your brother until they repent, but rather that you do everything you can to bring your brother to repentance.
