You are worthy of God’s redeeming love

From the February 12, 2018 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Who of us, at one time or another, hasn’t said or done something that we are not proud of, or perhaps even made what seems to be a paralyzing mistake—something we feel keeps us from moving forward on a better path? In that sense, we’re probably no different than many of the Bible luminaries who had less than perfect lives: Moses (killed a man), Jacob (stole his brother’s birthright), David (lied and committed adultery), Saul (persecuted Christians), to name just a few! Yet, even they found redemption and new purpose in God’s saving grace.   The book of Matthew illustrates that each of us is just as deserving of the redeeming love of God.
