For He is Kind

We have seen this morning that the Father loves us of His own accord. This is hard to reconcile for some of us because we know what awful sins we have committed in times past. Some even struggle still, in Christ, because we know that we continue to sin, even in a state of grace.
       But I remind you that the Father loved you, even when you were dead in your sins. It was His love for you that brought you confession, repentance, forgiveness and life in Jesus Christ.

       It is His kindness that leads us to repentance. Kindness is always rich in mercy. So, we come now to our kind Father and we take comfort knowing this, His continued kindness leads us to continued repentance which brings us peace and assurance in Jesus, our Savior.
