He is the propitiation for our sins... (1 John 2:2a)
I am forgiven because God's love is so deep and rich that God the Son absorbed God's wrath against sin for me and for the world.
My prayer time this morning focused on forgiveness and the gift of confession--the opportunity to admit when I've sinned, even though I am forgiven. To clear the air with God. To remember that I'm free to live for him. I don't have to sin. I live fuller and freer when I don't.
