Think how many times you’ve messed up, acted selfishly or turned away from God. Yet when you realized what you had done and sincerely apologized, you experienced the freeing power of forgiveness. Believe it or not, there’s something even more powerful than forgiveness. It’s the fact that God actually wipes away the past, transforms you and lets you experience the miracle of a new beginning. It may not make any sense. But it’s real. And even more importantly, Jesus wants it to be real for you.
