By Still Waters I

I forgive you.
Thorns.
I forgive every sin,
Every sinful action,
Every sinful word.
Nails.
Every sinful omission,
Past sins,
Present sins,
Future sins.
Blood.
I know you don’t deserve my forgiveness.
You have truly sinned against me.
And there’s the point – you don’t deserve it!
Forgiveness is not something deserved.
It is something given.
If it was deserved,
It would not be forgiveness.
How plain.
And yet,
We are blind
Until we understand in our hearts,
And obey,
Remembering we have been forgiven
By an offended God,
Who looked past the offense
And saw
Thorns,
Nails,
Blood.
Because He was heart-generous,
He forgave.
Because He loved us.
He forgave.
Therefore, we die to self
And forgive.
And it is beautiful.
And freeing
You shall know the truth,
And the truth shall set you
Free.
