Morning and Evening

For the evening of November 27th

"The forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace." --Ephesians 1:7

Could there be a sweeter word in any language than that word "forgiveness," when it sounds in a guilty sinner's ear, like thesilver notes of jubilee to the captive Israelite? Blessed, forever blessed be that dear star of pardon which shines into thecondemned cell, and gives the perishing a gleam of hope amid themidnight of despair! Can it be possible that sin, such sin asmine, can be forgiven, forgiven altogether, and for ever? Hellis my portion as a sinner--there is no possibility of myescaping from it while sin remains upon me--can the load ofguilt be uplifted, the crimson stain removed? Can the adamantinestones of my prison-house ever be loosed from their mortices, orthe doors be lifted from their hinges? Jesus tells me that I mayyet be clear. For ever blessed be the revelation of atoning lovewhich not only tells me that pardon is possible, but that it issecured to all who rest in Jesus. I have believed in theappointed propitiation, even Jesus crucified, and therefore mysins are at this moment, and for ever, forgiven by virtue of Hissubstitutionary pains and death. What joy is this! What bliss tobe a perfectly pardoned soul! My soul dedicates all her powersto Him who of His own unpurchased love became my surety, andwrought out for me redemption through His blood. What riches ofgrace does free forgiveness exhibit! To forgive at all, toforgive fully, to forgive freely, to forgive for ever! Here is aconstellation of wonders; and when I think of how great my sinswere, how dear were the precious drops which cleansed me fromthem, and how gracious was the method by which pardon was sealedhome to me, I am in a maze of wondering worshipping affection.I bow before the throne which absolves me, I clasp the crosswhich delivers me, I serve henceforth all my days the IncarnateGod, through whom I am this night a pardoned soul.
