GOD WILL ABUNDANTLY PARDON --- Isaiah 55:7. C. H. V. Bogatzky's Daily Devotions May 6. GospelWeb.net

The Sixth of May.


"O Lord, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great." --- Psalm 25:11.

Divine Answer: "Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound." --- Romans 5:20.

"God will abundantly pardon." --- Isaiah 55:7.

It is all one with God to forgive a repentant sinner his trespasses, whether great or small, many or few; for they are all paid with one ransom. No sin, properly speaking, is little in itself; and none greater than the grace of God, and the infinite price laid down for it.

Whatever sins, therefore, a man feels, yet he may thrown himself upon the abounding grace of God: but this grace must always be our comfort, to depend upon it alone, even when it is best with us; for then only it is best with us when we depend alone on grace, and live in it as in our element.

Why does your face, ye humble souls,
Those mournful colours wear?
What doubts are these that waste your faith,
And nourish your despair?

What though your numerous sins exceed
The stars that fill the skies?
And, aiming at the eternal throne,
Like pointed mountains rise?

See here an endless ocean flows,
Of never-failing grace!
Behold a dying Saviour's veins
The sacred flood increase!

It rises high, and drowns the hills,
Has neither shore nor bound:
Now if we search to find our sins,
Our sins can ne'er be found.
