Read Isaiah 59: 9-15a
The people respond and admit to a laundry-list of sins, (verses 13-14). Repentance and forgiveness is the pattern of a Gospel-centered life. This begins when the Servant suffers on our behalf, and we turn to Him in repentance, and the Lord grants forgiveness -- full and free! This is also the pattern for our lives in Christian community -- repentance followed by forgiveness and freedom. Where is repentance and forgiveness needed in your relationships today?
