To Know Forgiveness

It is sometimes difficult for the repentant to believe in forgiveness when it is not being extended to them. "If you don't forgive me, how could a holy God?" we might think.

If you would believe you are forgiven, then, don't look at some sinner's jutted chin, crossed arms, and tapping foot. Look instead to the thorn-crowned brow, the nailed hands, and the feet, once nailed, that have crushed the serpent's head. If you want to know forgiveness, look to the cross.
