Why We Are Forgiven

Ever stop to consider why God forgave you through His Son?  If you have, the answer, most likely, will center on you, it does for me…  Something on the order of, “He forgave me so that I can _________,” fill in the blank…
If someone asked why God forgave you, how would you answer?  Thoughts at DTTB.
John paints a strikingly different picture in 1 John 2:12.  He says that we have been forgiven for His name’s sake.  That gives me pause.  It takes a bit to wrap one’s head around that.  That we were forgiven not for our sake but for His name’s sake.

Think through all the implications of that.
