Re:Verse passage – Daniel 9:1-23 (day three)

“The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him.”

The first clause of the above passage of scripture is news; the second clause is gospel. Where in all the world will be found pity and pardon despite adversarial behavior? Only with God. These are the tidings from heaven that Paul never got over: “while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Repentance and salvation are both swept up into that joyous summation. Indeed, throughout the entire cosmos ring these words from Daniel which announce all is not lost: “even though.”
