No Pleading Necessary For Forgiveness

No Pleading Necessary

We might get the impression from today's reading in which Moses pleaded mercy for the Israelites, that we too need to change God's mind toward mercy. Moses used two good arguments for God: you promised, and you'll look confused about your plan. 

Since Jesus offered Himself for our salvation and took all our sins upon Himself, we needn't plead for God's mercy, although our contrition should be heartfelt and sincere, we simply need to express our sorrow and ask.
