Not much to say tonight…except this:
It’s extended to all of us, but we don’t always take it.
We have to punish ourselves first. Make sure we earn that forgiveness.
But then…we’re trapped.
You know what keeps Christians from being effective? Refusing forgiveness. Bowing our heads to the ground. Crawling, scraping, trying earn our way back to the Father. (As if we need to!)
And while we do that, we are utterly and completely focused on ourselves. No good to anyone else.
So yeah, you did that thing. Whatever it was.
Ask forgiveness, get over yourself, and start being useful again. Get back out there.
