For Your name’s sake, O Lord, pardon our iniquity; for they are great. Psalm 25:11
It’s for the honor of Your name.
It’s for Your reputation Lord that You forgive.
It’s not because of anything we’ve done.
It’s not based on our performance.
Every day we prove to ourselves we need Your forgiveness
To us who work not, but believes on You that justifies the ungodly,
Our faith is counted for righteousness. Rom 4:5
When the President pardons someone, he is not saying they are innocent.
He is simply, often without reason or explanation, setting them free.
But while they may now be free, they are no less guilty.
There is absolutely nothing the President can do about guilt.
God’s pardons are vastly different. God takes those with mountains of sins
Sins to many to list & wipes their slate clean.
Then God views them as righteous as His spotless Son Jesus Christ.
That Man of Calvary has won my heart from me,
And died to set me free, blessed Man of Calvary.
M. P. Ferguson
And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding
will guard our hearts & minds through Christ Jesus.
