Seek God while He’s here to be found, pray to Him while He’s close at hand. Let the wicked abandon their way of life and the evil of their way of thinking. Let them come back to God, who is merciful, come back to our God, who is lavish with forgiveness. When you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive–only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.” Long before He laid down earth’s foundations, He had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of His love, to be made whole and holy by His love. Long, long ago He decided to adopt us into His family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure He took in planning this!)
