Good Words for Today: November 5

“The blood of Jesus . . . cleanses us from every sin” (1 John 1:7). Think of all your sins. Think of the sins you don’t like to think about. Think of the sins you are ashamed to admit. Think of the sins you don’t want the rest of us to know about. There is cleansing even for those sins. Yes, even for THAT sin. Whatever it is, the blood of Jesus can wash away the stain, the guilt, and the shame. This is why the gospel is truly Good News. It’s what Corrie Ten Boom meant when she said, “There is no pit so deep that the love of God is not deeper still.”
