This week, we celebrate that Jesus Comes to Forgive Sins.
With a fire crackling in the chiminea, chairs drawn up close, and hot chocolate in hands, we’ll talk more personally about our sin, confessing our sins to one another and praying for each other, so that we may be healed. We will rejoice that the One whose mere breath placed the stars above our heads, sees into the depths of our hearts and loves us. How wonderful it will be to reflect, as a family, on the beauty of Christ’s obedient life-unto-death… so that we may walk in forgiveness.
I can only imagine how powerfully these Words will sink into our hearts as we look up into the heavens, which were an afterthought compared to us:
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love; having predestined us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In who we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins…” Savor the entire reading in Ephesians 1: 3-14
Come, Lord Jesus, Come!
