Healing Our Disobedience

“He shares His grace with each one of us as a person, and each receives forgiveness of his sins from Him…His wish was to save us all completely and for our sake He bowed the heavens and came down. When by His deeds, words and sufferings He pointed out all the ways of salvation, He went up to heaven again, drawing after Him those who trusted in Him. His aim was to grant perfect redemption not just to the nature which He had assumed from us in inseparable union, but to each one of those who believed in Him. This He has done and continues to do, reconciling each of us through Himself to the Father, bringing each one back to obedience and thoroughly healing our disobedience” (Saint Gregory Palamas, The Homilies, 34-35).
