“…He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love. He will again have compassion on us; he will tread our iniquities underfoot. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.”
Our altar of repentance is the shore of a river that leads into an ocean; as we lay at this altar and pour out confession after confession of our sin, it falls into depths we cannot fathom, and we are clean – free from that sin.
This is grace – undeserved, beautiful, inconceivable grace.
