By the grace of God we can use forgiveness as a positive, creative force bringing light into a darkened world.
Nobody does that kind of thing better, of course, than God. Who could imagine 2,000 years ago that the symbol of the Christian church would be a hangman’s noose, an electric chair, a guillotine?
Those analogies may be necessary for us to keep from being too sentimental about “the old, rugged cross.” A cross is a terrible thing. It was indeed a symbol of suffering and shame. Humanity nailed God’s own Son on a cross.
What barbarity! What unspeakable evil! Yet God turned that cross into the means by which you and I may find our salvation. That is what God can do with forgiveness. What can you do with forgiveness in your life?

In YOUR life and in the life of the world around you, how can YOU use forgiveness as a positive, creative force bringing light to where there is darkness?
JESUS DOESN’T CARE ABOUT YOUR PAST. HE SIMPLY WILL GIVE YOU HIS HAND AND CHERISH THE DAY THAT YOU DECIDE TO FIND HIM!!
