God Is On Your Side

Micah 7:19
You will cast into the depths of the sea all our sins.

God has a goal for each of us and will never give up on achieving it. The goal is for each of us to become whole. Each of us is flawed. Each of us is imperfect. It is in our imperfection that we need God. It is not the place where God wants to punish us…it is the place where God yearns to be with us and transform us with unconditional love and acceptance. In the words of Richard Rohr, “God loves you and you cannot change God’s mind!” Why would God make us imperfect and then punish us for being imperfect? God wants our imperfections to lead us to the love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion of God! Jesus showed us that God always responds with love and forgiveness (“Father, forgive them, they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34)). It is the only way to transformation and wholeness…or in a word, “salvation.”
