Aug 27 – Won’t Somebody Forgive Me?

The little guy had done something wrong and was being punished, finding himself in a room with disapproving adults- father, mother and other relatives. Because of what he had done, they all had very sober expressions on their faces, wanting to impress the little boy of the seriousness of his misdemeanor. When he looked at them, one by one, with a tear stained face, he saw no smiles or sings of relenting. Finally, he burst into tears and wailed, “Won’t somebody forgive me? We smile. We’ve been there, done that. But what about our situation? We have all sinned against God in many ways. We are sinners by nature and by choice. “All have sinned.”” There is none righteous, no not one.” But perhaps today you feel like that little boy. Aware that you have done wrong, but wonder if God will forgive you. He will! God inspired Paul to write-In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.”
