Lent Reflection Day 20

 

SCRIPTURE: "Then he saw their faith, he said, “As for you, your sins are forgiven.”" ~ Luke 5:20


REFLECTION

The good news is that God is more eager to forgive us than we will ever know. God is always there to embrace us, to receive us home again, and to let us start afresh. One reason we struggle to forgive others is that we do not really believe that we are forgiven people.

 

DAILY PRACTICE

Take time today to kneel in God’s presence. Share your failures as honestly as you can with God. Hear the words of Jesus: “Friends, your sins are forgiven.” Receive this forgiveness and step into the new life God offers. If you need to make amends with someone, commit yourself to doing so as soon as possible.
