Today I will reflect on what forgiveness truly means as I pray “forgive what I’ve been, amend what I am, and direct what I shall be in newness of life with thee.” “Forgiveness means that I am forgiven into a newly created relationship which identifies me with God in Christ. The miracle of redemption is that God turns me, the unholy one, into the standard of Himself, the Holy One. He does this by putting into me a new nature, the nature of Jesus Christ.” (Chambers, Utmost, November 19)

Romans 3:24
“and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

Today I will be received at God’s altar through the miracle of redemption.
