Christian Optimism

Blog-browsing while a nasty blizzard rages outside (which is why I'm not at work today), I spotted this absolutely dead-on couldn't-make-it-any-plainer summation of "Christian optimism" (from Mark Dever at Together for the Gospel:
The wonderful optimism that is Christian is all about being adopted by the Father we rejected, and being forgiven by the husband we cheated on. It is about being accepted by the Righteous Judge, and about being embraced by the Friend we betrayed. All of this is sure in Christ. About all of these matters, there is no room for pessimism.
That rocks.
