“He forgave you before you repented. That’s crucial. See, that is why it is so outrageous. The gospel is really vulgar, crass and immoral because it says God forgives the world before it repents. In the gospel, repent is always repent and believe. It means turn yourself around from not trusting the forgiveness and trust it. That’s it. It doesn’t mean that you earn it by repenting. You had it before.”
This has been a hard pill to swallow for me. I’m not sure why, but I have an idea.
Everything around me from work, family, and culture tells me that I have to do something.
Scratch my back I’ll scratch yours.
