Understanding Forgiveness

I think it’s more than “You’re innocent.  I’ve forgotten what you’ve done.”  I think it also includes, “You’re beautiful.  You aren’t stupid.  You aren’t a loser.  You are my favorite person in the universe (at least tied for first place). I’m deeply in love with you. You are so valuable.”  On and on and on. This is how God loves and forgives us.  It’s not just a declaration that you’re innocent, not guilty.
