Our Faithful, Forgiving God
The Prophet Micah continues with words of comfort today, reminding us of God’s faithfulness and forgiveness.
You will cast into the depths of the sea all our sins.
Micah 7:14-15, 18-20
Shepherd your people with your staff,
The flock of your inheritance,
That dwells apart in a woodland,
In the midst of Carmel.
Let them feed in Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old;
as in the days when you came from the land of Egypt,
show us wonderful signs.
Who is there like you, the God who removes guilt
And pardons sin for the remnant of God’s inheritance;
Who does not persist in anger forever,
But delights rather in clemency,
And will again have compassion on us,
Treading underfoot our guilt?
You will cast into the depths of the sea
All our sins;
You will show faithfulness to Jacob,
And grace to Abraham,
As you have sworn to our ancestors
From days of old.
