Jun 11-12 – Love and Forgiveness – Weekend Worship

Both Law and Gospel; both sinner and saint; both confession and absolution. On this earth, we live with a constant tension of a “both . . . and” when it comes to who we are and what God calls us. We hear that clearly in today’s Scripture, beginning with 2 Samuel. King David admitted, “I have sinned against the LORD,” and the prophet Nathan assured him, “The LORD has put away your sin.” In the Gospel, the sinful woman at the dinner party washed Jesus’ feet with her tears of repentance, and Jesus said, “Your sins are forgiven.” Realizing our own sin, the breaking of God’s Law which is good and wise for our earthly lives, and recognizing our continual need of a Savior, the Lord never leaves us in our guilt and shame. In our own repentance, we find the Good News of living in a “both . . . and” state, with the last words from the Lord always being ones of hope, promise, joy, and forgiveness through Christ alone that “in Christ Jesus . . . we might receive the promised Spirit through faith” (Galatians 3:14).
