Ephesians 1:7-8 (ESV) In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight.
You and I have been Unleashed from our trespasses. The Greek word for trespasses implies not just known sin or intentional sin but unknown and unintentional sin. This is the awesomeness of our Lord’s grace in our lives, it covers; as another portion of scripture states, a multitude of sins. As a searcher and even as a new believer, I marvelled at God’s grace for I knew how much forgiveness I needed and how willing God was to cover them. I hope you get this! I mean really get this! Your sins, trespasses, offences…have been covered by God’s abundant grace. No longer are you subject to the guilt of those sins. No longer are you held captive by the pain of them…you have been forgiven, Unleashed from them. It’s not a matter of being deserving of this grace or in working toward it or being good enough, none of those matter. What matters is Christ’s finished work on the cross and you and I learning to rest in it.
