Building on a Firm Foundation, Friday Morning

“Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.”

The Epistle Reflection this morning is drawn, in part, from Romans 5:6-8.  St. Paul is making a point: we are unworthy of God’s mercy; undeserving of God’s favour.  “While we were yet sinners…” He still loved us.  “While we were yet sinners…” He came to earth for us.  “While we were yet sinners…” we were rightly separated from God, who is righteous.  And yet, such is the love of God for us that He died for us while we were yet sinners.

Our meditative time this morning might be spent considering how deep the Father’s love for us is, that undeserving He would still forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.
