All Sin

It seemed to me as if it were possible that most of my sins might be forgiven. They were bad enough, but then they were no worse than others. But there were some dark spots in my life, sins that I was ashamed to think of, and I could not believe that there could be forgiveness for such as those.
I spent many anxious hours over this, but at last, light broke in. This verse was brought by the Holy Spirit to my mind: "The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin." 1 John 1:77But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. (1 John 1:7).
Oh, what a wonderful verse! I just left all my sins, little ones and great ones, inside the word "ALL."
Thank God for this message of assurance! He would not leave us in doubt. That word "ALL" is large indeed, though it is made up of only three letters.
"ALL sin"—Yes! Sin of every character and shade—"the little sins," as some people speak of them, and the great ones too.
"ALL sin." None is too dark or desperate. The soul that comes to the Savior is completely cleansed.
"ALL sin." Oh, come to the Savior now. He wants to bless you. The door of mercy stands open wide. Soon the Master of the house of blessing will rise and close that door of salvation.
Think seriously of what it will mean to have missed that cleansing, and to be joined forever with your sin and its doom. Don't be a fool. "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow." Isa. 1:1818Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18).
