DAILY READINGS: 2 Kings 11:1-12:21; Jeremiah 48:1-47; Hebrews 12:18-13:6

He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. Proverbs 28:13

What good news this is! As sinners, we are guilty before God, and under His condemnation. Yet, His grace is reaching out to us, offering us a complete pardon. We must not think that this offer indicates that God has lowered His standards regarding our guiltiness. The gospel proclaims that the bestowing of mercy on the guilty is entirely consistent with God’s righteous character. The out-flow of mercy to us is the result of the perfect work of Christ who “died for our sins” (1 Cor. 15:3). Today, turn from sin, and trust the Saviour. —George Hall

Mercy there was great and grace was free,
Pardon there was multiplied to me,
There my burdened soul found liberty, at Calvary. —W. R. Newell
