Recently, an email came from one of our volunteers that warmed my soul. May it bless you as well:
Last evening, in broken English, with tears in their eyes, three Chinese friends living in my home expressed the joy of their "pardon" through faith in Jesus Christ! Their faith journey came to a point of decision during the Luis Palau Festival last week in Omaha. As we visited, they were especially jubilant to learn the truth that they could "forget what lies behind and press forward to the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." The pain and troubles of their past made the pardon all the more magnificent!
The experience last evening was especially profound for me as I was reminded again of the crippled state from which I was rescued and pardoned. My lasting pardon, that cannot be revoked.
Celebrating our pardon together!
