Reflection for the Week- February 17th, 2015

God’s forgiveness is unconditional, yet at the same time paradoxically conditional. That is, Christ’s work on the behalf of humanity is universal. It takes care of the totality of sin once and for all. There is not one single sin that stands outside his powerful blood to cleanse. While this wonderful truth is a done deal, it is crucial for each person, as the opportunity presents itself, to recognize, accept, and embrace this gracious invitation to be forgiven, and then to live out its implications for the past, present, and the future.

Dr. Gregory J. Laughery
