When God sacrificed His only Son as payment for all our sins, He was showing just how great His love for us truly is. For as in Adam all are dead, we are now alive through Jesus Christ our Lord.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
Unless it is a sin against the Holy Spirit, no sin is too great for God to forgive. For God is faithful in His promises, generous in His love, unwavering in His forgiveness, and kind to all. He provides us peace when everything seems to collapse around us, hope when there is no hope, grace when we need it most and joy when sorrow grips our heart.
In the same way, we ought to forgive others as God has forgiven us. Our lives depend on God’s mercy, so should we be merciful to others as a way to show them who God is and how His nature lives in us through Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Of ourselves, we are as specks in the sand. Had God not called us to Himself, we would be nothing. Our repentance through His Son reconciled us to our Father. He has forgiven us and forever we will be part of His eternal family, whose members of His household no one can remove.
