So Much Challenges Us
and Would Separate Us From the Light of Christ.
Christ is with Us Always,
Sending Us to Be Little-Christs for All Others.
Happy are those whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Words of Grace For Today
We would like to think and say: happy are they who do not sin …
but there is no one who can not sin, and it would be a hopeless, despairing statement to try to maintain.
We all sin.
We all turn from God.
We all turn against God and all that is good for our own and everyone else’s lives.
The only hope for us is that our transgressions are forgiven and our sins covered.
This Jesus does for us.
We get to celebrate,
Give God thanks,
be Christ’s hands and voice to forgive and cover other people’s sins.
Life is full
full of challenges
full of reasons to give thanks
full of good things to be and do for others.
