Now That's Grace



Today I move to the section in Numbers where Moses pleads with the LORD to forgive His people.  The LORD has just told Moses He is going to dispossess this people who refuse to believe in Him, and Moses begins to pray.  The whole context is that the LORD should forgive them not because of who they are; not because of anything they have done, but because of who He is:  slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression.  Moses then prays, "Pardon, I pray, the iniquity of this people according to the greatness of Your lovingkindness, just as You have also forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now."  GRACE.  I sit here with great hope and joy in my heart because of grace- and it continually amazes me.




Grace, Peace, and Mercy,
Deb

Hi Deb:

thank you so much for visiting me and for your thoughtful comment.

I am thankful (and amazed) and His grace. It's not from anything we have done (or could ever do), but all because of His great love for us.

Many blessings,
Joan
