Gleanings 354

It is an awful sin that nominal Christianity commits in making so little as it does of the blood of God's Son. It is either something that I know as shed for me, or something repudiated by me; and the not accepting that blood as what God has declared it to be, is one of the solemn sins of the present day. I dishonor that blood if I do not believe that it has washed my sins away, if I do not see all guilt gone, if I am not quite at peace and free in the presence 43/God, looking for the Eternal Lover of my soul who is coming to take me to be with Him as the One who bought me with that blood and saved me forever. Saved thus, the dying thief went to the paradise of God with the same liberty as Christ Himself.
