There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent. (Luke 24:42)
Extended by God, through Christ, is the pinnacle of amazing offerings, the forgiveness of sins.
Amazing first, as God had no need of us, and yet moved on our behalf to rescue us when we ourselves committed offense and stood condemned of every dark deed. We were guilty and worthy of the death sentence, yet in mercy he provided a path to freedom.
Amazing second, as this verdict of dismissal, this complete exoneration, was not limited to a few favored people, some specific nationality, or age range, but to everyone who would repent of their sin.
Amazing third, as he not only frees everyone who repents, but he invites them to become members of his own household.
I am ever amazed and ever grateful for your depth of mercy and love, your act of forgiveness, and the life abiding in your marvelous grace. Amen.
“and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.”
