Our Daily Grace: Forgiven Before We Repent

 "The Gospel is really vulgar, crass and immoral because it says that God forgives the world before it repents."

Robert Capon

"God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting people's sins against them. And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation."

2 Corinthians 5:19

Forgiveness - not counting people's sins against them.  That is what God did in Christ!  It's so mind-blowing to think of how He forgave the whole world before any of us repented, before we confessed, before we believed, and before you or I were even born.  We can share the message of this reconciliation, that God holds nothing against people, that there is nothing between us and God, that His arms are open wide to embrace us all!

A thought: There is nothing between me and God.

May the amazing grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the extravagant love of God, and the intimate friendship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you. 2 Co. 13:14
