CQOD: 11/25/07 -- Palau: unworthy of forgiveness

Christian Quotation of the Day

November 25, 2007
Commemoration of Katherine of Alexandria, Martyr, 4th century
    Some men brought to him a paralytic, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven."
    At this, some of the teachers of the law said to themselves, "This fellow is blaspheming!"
    Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, "Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts? Which is easier: to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up and walk'? But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins..." Then he said to the paralytic, "Get up, take your mat and go home." And the man got up and went home.
    -- Matthew 9:2-7 (NIV)

    Most people feel unworthy of forgiveness. They have a tremendous sense of unworthiness, even if outwardly they are antagonistic toward God and the Gospel.
    ... Luis Palau (b.1934)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I have no other hope unless You forgive me of my sins.
