"God makes us
right in his sight."
So, let me get this straight....
even though we are sinful - we are things & do things that are contrary to the very nature & essence of who God is...
even though we are sinful,
because of Jesus & His sacrifice of Himself,
God forgives all our sins,
& everything is made ok between us & God?

no matter who we are or what we've ever been or done?
That too simple.
That's so unlike the rest of our live experience.
Nothing's that simple.
That is the scandal of the possibility of reconnecting with God through Jesus.
We don't get what we deserve.
We experience the grace of God,
& His mercy,
& His forgiveness,
& His love for us.
"And God makes us right in His sight."
