What is happening when God forgives our sins?

What do you think happens when God forgives our sin? Is it God changing and suddenly, reassessing us? Is it God deciding to waive some eternal and required punishment? No! Nothing happens in God. God is a perfect given-ness, totally and always given, literally fore-given, ahead of time, before our act of receptivity.

God does not change; we change. Here is what’s happening in the experience of forgiveness: When God’s arms are tight enough around us, when for a moment we can believe in love, when we let God gaze into your eyes deeply enough and are ready to believe it, than we’re able to let God rob us of our sins! God pulls them out of our pocket while holding us in an intimate and intense gaze. It is the only time we are quite happy to be robbed!
