The text means, t...

Monday, July 23, 2018 "The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin." Today's Devotional Reading 1 John 1:7 "Cleanseth," says the text - not "shall cleanse." There are multitudes who think that as a dying hope they may look forward to pardon. Oh! how infinitely better to have cleansing now than to depend on the bare possibility of forgiveness when I come...

Today's Devotional Reading Mark 16:9 Jesus "appeared first to Mary Magdalene," probably not only on account of her great love and persevering seeking, but because, as the context intimates, she had been a special trophy of Christ's delivering power. Learn from this, that the greatness of our sin before conver...
