Since God is Love…forgiveness is always offered.

Ezekiel 16:62-63

For I will re-establish my covenant with you, that you may remember and be covered with confusion, and that you may be utterly silenced for shame when I pardon you for all you have done, says the Lord God.

God’s people constantly broke their covenant with God…time after time after time.

We continue to do so.

But God offers us unconditional love.

God IS Unconditional Love!

Yet each of us has turned away…many times…choosing to serve our egos instead. Despite this…God did not and does not reject us.

Instead of condemning…God forgives!

I believe that it is precisely the fact that God forgives when we don’t deserve it…that makes all the difference. We are not punished but loved by a Creator who can only love.

And when we receive this Unconditional Love in response to our sinfulness…we are “covered with confusion” and “utterly silenced for shame.”

We weep in the face of such unmerited Love.

Our hearts are changed.

This is the transformation we undergo as we gaze upon Jesus on the cross as he looks down upon those who have rejected him in the most extreme manner and says, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34).

This is a Love that transforms us…and sets us free.
