        • We use worldly metrics in our comparison (money, fame, success)
    • Compare to “Lesser men”
      • Inappropriate Response:
        • We believe ourselves higher than the “lesser men”

Fundamental Truth: WHERE YOU MUCH, YOU ARE MUCH

Inappropriate Response:

  • Matthew 18:21-35

The reason we don’t see a large degree of love in ourselves is:

  1. We don’t really feel forgiven
  2. We don’t feel we need forgiving (by metric of comparison or proportionality)

To live out the full potential of our purpose to Fear God, we must first be:

  • Properly aligned in our comparison to realize how insufficient we are to God
  • Understand how unfaithful we are with the little things
  • Recognize the gravity and depths of our sin and God’s grace and what we received
  • Worship and serve God by Loving in His name!

Could Hitler go to Heaven?

Answer: If Hitler repented, aligned himself in proper comparison to God and committed himself to the service and worship of God, then equivocally YES!

And If God could forgive Hitler of His sins, He can forgive YOU!
