Our record of sins overwhelms me, but you forgive our acts of rebellion.—Ps 65:3 NET
There is much earnest religion that lives in the dreary compass of these first four words, “Iniquities prevail against me,” and never gets a glimpse beyond it. But do not put a full stop there. Fetch in One who can help. “As for our transgressions, Thou shalt purge them away.” The moment we bring the Lord in, that moment defeat is turned to triumphant deliverance!
Write that up in golden letters Thou! And do not find in this word only a trembling hope, or a wondering wish. Listen to its full assurance Thou shalt!
There is but one result that can warrant the agony of Calvary; there is but one result that can satisfy either our blessed Savior or ourselves; and that is our being conquerors over sin. — Mark Guy Pearse.
