NUGGETS: Forgiveness, Faith, and the Father’s Love [3/24/12]

Spend some brief moments this weekend meditating on the love of God made gloriously visible in the gift of His Son.

Forgiveness for Moms who Fail – “In my twenty-five years of pastoral ministry, I don’t think I have met a mom, including a preschool mom, who feels like she has done a good enough job,” writes Robert Jones. Learn the difference between true guilt and distorted guilt the hope found only in Christ. After reading this post, check out the abundance of resources on the Biblical Counseling Coalition site.

Faith Triumphs over Feelings – From the Reigning Grace Counseling Center, Julie Ganschow writes, “Romans 8:28 does not tell us that all things are good. It tells us that God uses all things for the good of those who love Him. While we, like Job and Joseph, often do not understand exactly how God does this one thing, we can be sure that He uses these things to help us become more like Christ.”

Fatherly Pity – “Behold, O believer, in the loving, pitying thoughts; and tender pitying deeds of the earthly parent — a picture and symbol of God’s thoughts and God’s love to you!”
