I'm working on a two week series at Getwell called "Now & Later" looking at the stuff of earth and the winds of heaven.  As I'm studying, I'm looking at the freedom that Christ offers us even as we're slaves to sins.  I'm also pondering how God forgives us yet still lets us live out the consequences of our disobedience.  Following up my post on the "sincerity" of Damon Evans' apology, I must think about the "consequences" of sin, even when its forgiven.  The details for Evans got messy, and apparently a guy who a week ago was seemingly on top of the world is now out of a job and no doubt is in a marriage that is at crisis point.  Again, I believe Evans was sincere in his apology just as he was sincerely wrong in his behavior.  I marvel at an all-powerful God who forgives us completely yet allows us the punishment, on this earth, we deserve.
