Imagine meeting someone who is so breathtakingly good, so kind and intelligent that you fall instantly in love with them. So you beg them to come and live with you. And they say, “Yes!”
Now imagine they’ve acquired a video of every mean, selfish, ugly thing you’ve ever done–thousands upon thousands of videos. You’re devastated. And yet after watching all of the videos, their answer is still, “Yes!”
That’s forgiveness. No, it’s beyond forgiveness. It’s perfect love–the most powerful force in the universe. How could you not love someone like that forever?
That Person is real.
“But God proves His love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” ~Romans 5:8
