Genesis 25:34; Job 31:1-40; Matthew 13:24-43

For thy name’s sake, O Lord, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. Psalm 25:11

To him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Romans 4:5 When the American President pardons someone, he is not saying they are innocent. He is simply, often without reason or explanation, setting them free. But while they may now be free, they are no less guilty. There is absolutely nothing the President can do about that. God’s pardons are vastly different. God takes men and women with too many sins to list and wipes their slate clean. He sees them as righteous as His spotless Son. —Ken Gross

That Man of Calvary has won my heart from me,
And died to set me free, blessed Man of Calvary. —M. P. Ferguson
