The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7, NKJV

The world is filled with people who struggle with guilt and a sense of failure. Oh, to live life over and to live it right! They stream into the offices of psychologists and psychiatrists, longing for relief from a wounded conscience. God loves and wants to forgive. Christ’s death on the cross paid the penalty of sin. We can know relief—if we turn to Christ and trust Him. There is no other remedy; there is none other needed. —Donald L. Norbie

Lord, I believe Thy precious blood,
Which, at the mercy seat of God,
Forever doth for sinners plead,
For me, e’en for my soul, was shed.—N. Z.
