One of the great blessings of Christianity is the work of grace done by Jesus on the cross. In that dark and terrible day Jesus accomplished redeption, forgiveness of sin and so much more. He also made it possible for us to recover from a sin like the one this site discusses and find a place to serve God once more.
I have the great joy of meeting almost every week with our former pastor whose sin motivated me to write these posts. He told me he’s closer to God in his walk now than he has ever been. He’s even looking for a way to once more serve God in ministry of some kind. I’m thrilled for the redeeming work of God that grace makes possible. I’m glad God can redeem lives we would never consider worthy of redemption. We seem to be more comfortable dismissing the sinners among us rather than forgiving, redeeming and restoring them, but thankfully God loves the sinner too much to let them be thrown on the trash heap of failed lives.
I’m thankful for the grace of God that provides redemption, restoration and healing for all of us.
