Articles and thoughts by Steve Green.
Since Jesus has shed His most precious blood, it is now glorious on the part of God to dart a ray of hope of pardoned sin into the darkest heart that ever wept and confessed at His feet.
Approach, sin-distressed, guilt-burdened one! There is hope of forgiveness for you in God. He delights in mercy. And since He can forgive all your transgressions for Christ’s sake, and be glorious in the eyes of angels and of saints in so doing, do you think that He will spurn you from His throne of grace if you simply acknowledge your transgressions and rest the hand of faith on the head of Christ, the sin-atoning Lamb of God?
My reader, are your circumstances trying? Are your resources depleted? Are clouds gathering? Do you find yourself tempted to succumb to despondency and despair? There is hope for you in God! All other sources and gleams of hope have expired, but God is the God of hope, and in His power and love, in His Word and faithfulness, you may hope, even against hope. Take heart, then and look up. Never yield to despair while there is hope in God. If things look discouraging and prospects are gloomy, there is one Being to whose providence you may always turn with the full assurance of hope; in His divine love and infinite resources, you will find compassion, support, and help.
