Psalms 130

I know this has nothing to do with beading, but...........as we enter into the Easter season, we should be turning our thoughts onto the true meaning of Easter and it has nothing to do with bunny rabbits, eggs, or candy.  But everything to do with our Christ being crucified on the cross to forgive US ALL for our sins forever.

Psalm 130

Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord;
    Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
    to my cry for mercy.
If you, Lord, kept a record of sins,
    Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness,
    so that we can, with reverence, serve you.
I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
    and in his word I put my hope.
I wait for the Lord
    more than watchmen wait for the morning,
    more than watchmen wait for the morning.
Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
    for with the Lord is unfailing love
    and with him is full redemption.
He himself will redeem Israel
    from all their sins.

David was able to put things so that not only were they relevant to his time, but to our times also.  If we were judged on who was 'deserving' of forgiveness, no one would be forgiven.  Jesus died for us because we were beloved of God.
