Boy, this quote from C.S. Lewis sure strikes a chord with me, considering all that I've been feeling lately. This concept is something that I definitely believe, but that I certainly need to work on living my daily life like I believe this. It's easy to forget, and hard to put into practice.
Because if I truly believed that Christ has truly forgiven the utterly inexcusable in me, it would completely alter my life and how I interact with, think about, and pray for those around me. I would see them as Christ sees them; blemished children whom He longs to bring into His embrace and bathe them clean in His love. And it would be natural and appropriate to forgive them.
