To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives."
Fanny Crosby (1820-1915)
Who is a God like you, who s sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.
I met a lady in a store and we were looking at stuffed animals. We got to talking about our children, and she also had a young child who had died. Suddenly she asked me, "How can I know that I will see my child again in Heaven?"
The Holy Spirit brought to my mind the account of the repentant thief on the cross next to Jesus. (Luke 23:43) He did not do anything to earn eternal life. It was a free gift just because he believed in Jesus' promise of forgiveness.
Thank You, Jesus, for pardoning me!
