How Many Are Left?

A woman in the city of Dundee, who had been a profligate, but through faith in Christ had been saved and confessed it, was met by the sneer of a self-righteous woman, to whom she had testified of God's grace, who said, "Do you mind what you used to be when I knew you ten years ago?"
"Yes, and you do not know the half of it: I was far worse than you or anybody else knows. But you forgot one thing, 'The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin!' How many are left after that?"
This silenced her accuser, as it does the devil (see Revelation 12:1111And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. (Revelation 12:11)). He cannot stand before the all-cleansing blood. As the hymn states it—
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood avails for me.
