FORGIVENESS AND JOY
“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.”
Revelation 2:17 KJV
Charles Austin Miles wrote a beautiful inspiring hymn “A New Name In Glory”. “I was humbly kneeling at the cross, Fearing naught but God’s angry frown; When the heavens opened and I saw That my name was written down.” Is your name written down? Thank God for the redeeming cleansing blood of Jesus.
We read in the Bible. “Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth” (Luke 15:10). The angels rejoice when someone accepts Jesus as Saviour. Thank God for the cleansing redeeming blood of Jesus. What a loving Saviour we have!
