In a sermon titled "You Can't Forgive Yourself," Pastor Phil Ayres explores the concept of self-forgiveness. He emphasizes that self-forgiveness is not found in the Bible because forgiveness comes solely from Jesus. People struggling to forgive themselves are actually struggling with the idea that God has forgiven them, often due to feelings of unworthiness and past actions. Pastor Phil encourages confession and bringing shame into the light, as shame thrives in secrecy. He also highlights how understanding God's forgiveness enables individuals to extend forgiveness and compassion to others. The sermon concludes with an invitation for prayer and guidance.
