“The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him…” (Daniel 9.9, NIV)
It’s one thing to be forgiven for doing something accidentally, but to have the Lord be merciful to us even when we willfully rebelled against him? That’s an amazing statement about who God is and his love for us.
You hear people say that God could not forgive them for what they had done. Have you ever felt this way? Why is it so easy for us to assume we are “too far gone” for God’s love?
Describe a time when you felt like you most needed God’s forgiveness and he gave it.
How does God’s mercy and forgiveness affect how you love and love for him?
