Sin affects our relationship with God, but it does not alter His relationship with us. He is forever our loving father. Sin is an act of unfaithfulness, a turning of heart from the Lord to another, a rebuff of our sonship. The Lord willed us into being to participate in a loving relationship with Him. We are His sons and daughters, who He loves dearly. Our rebuff does not cause Him to withdrawn His love. He respects our decision to withdraw from Him and waits for our return. He is forever the faithful and, for a returning son or daughter, is always ready to lavish on them His mercy. Trust in His faithfulness, return and immerse yourself in His great love and mercy.
