"if you’re in a place of having been made to feel shameful, you should know there is good news. You don’t have to surrender to shame. You don’t have to be owned by regret. You don’t have to live forever under a dark cloud of guilt. The holy God of the universe who has condemned your sin and promised wrath for the unrepentant workers of disobedience offers you—freely, abundantly, mightily—total and absolute forgiveness, forever. To all who trust in Jesus Christ for salvation, his righteousness becomes theirs, his holiness becomes theirs, his security in the Father becomes theirs. And if you are repentant and believe in him, his grace is yours."
Matt Chandler, The Mingling of Souls
