DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings 19:1-21; Jeremiah 31:1-40; Hebrews 2:1-18

Through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things. Acts 13:38-39

Satan has whitewashed sin. Human society smiles upon evil and readily indulges in it. But God has not changed. The sinner must be washed, not whitewashed, by the fountain that was opened through the death of Christ at Calvary. That washing justifies so that the sinner is made clean and is seen by God as being in Christ. If you are in Christ, you know it. If not, you are in your sins, and far from God. —Doug Kazen

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought, My sin, not in part,
but the whole, Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more. Praise
the Lord, Praise the Lord, oh my soul! —Horatio G. Spafford
