One of the very first Bible verses I ever memorized has to do with God’s forgiveness. I was in college, and I memorized it with my best friend (who later became my husband). The concept of God’s freely given and unmerited forgiveness was still somewhat new to me, and precious. I had previously believed that I had to work for my forgiveness; and even then, it wasn’t guaranteed. I still think of those early days of new faith whenever I hear this verse.
Do you remember your “early days” with the Lord? What were some of the first things He taught you?
