“Return, faithless people; I will cure you of backsliding.” Yes, we will come to you, for you are the LORD our God.
When we sin, God invites us to return to Him for the cure. The cure for our disobedience to God is God. He invites us to return, faithless one, and I, The Pure Bridegroom, I the Holy One, I, Who have not sinned, I the One Who has been offended, I will cure you of this sin and restore our relationship. So the One Who is sinned against, the Injured Party, invites us to return to Him in repentance and He will forgive us.(I John 1:9) Apply this to our everyday lives. If someone sins against us or harms our relationship, the way to heal that is through forgiveness. In our humanness we resist this, but Christ is our example. His love compels us to reach out to forgive and heal, even if we are the injured person.
