Yesterday afternoon, I went to the closing ceremony of Kairos.
Was really moving to hear the testimonies of the prisoners and how the love and touch of God has changed them.
These hard men, who haven’t benn softened by real grace and forgiveness and love.
One guy shared with us… That in 5 days he is released. He has been in prison for 12 years already. Wow, I can’t even comprehend how that must feel…
5 days till freedom
5 days to a new life
And for 12 years he endured that time in prison. Wow!
One last thought, we’re not better than those prisoners. God loves them and us EXACTLY the same.
That’s something I can’t comprehend either, but I am okay with that.
Grace forgot the past.
