God's Forgiveness


"Don't think that God's forgiveness is a begrudging forgiveness and with that thought deny some of God's glorious love.  And don't think that God's promises are only for other people.  If this is how you are thinking, you must realize that your own sins, no matter how big, are not bigger than God's pleasure in forgiveness.

This is a time when you must be controlled by the truth of God more than your own feelings.  God's Word, not feelings, is our standard.  To be driven by our fluctuating sense of well-being may seem spiritual, but it is wrong.  It exalts our interpretation above God's."
- Edward T. Welch  in the book When People Are Big and God is Small
