The unthinkable

I think one of the things that I find most incredible and amazing about God is his ability and desire to forgive our sins. When I think about it I am blown away. It really is unthinkable and almost unbelievable that God would forgive us as he does.

Our problem, however, is that I don't think we actually believe that God forgives us. We think we need to earn forgiveness, pay penance or do something to pay for what we've done.

But that's not how God does it. If we confess, he forgives.

I think some of you needed to be reminded of this today, so I encourage you to read the following Psalms, spend some time in confession, and let God speak to you about how you are forgiven: Psalm 32, Psalm 51, Psalm 103.
