We Watch and Are Watched

"The great joy and hope of the gospel is that God does not survey us as a guard keeps a suppresive watch on his prisoners, but as a Father who keeps a loving and tender eye on his children. Though we are responsible for each ugly thought and deed, we know that every sin, every evil intention and action, has already been forgiven. Each sin has been added to the account of Jesus Christ who trades our sin for his righteousness. Between you and the watchful eye of God is his own Son, pleading the merit of his sacrifice. We have nothing to fear."  ~Tim Challies
