Leaving the Past Behind — J. Gresham Machen


“Who can recall the wasted moments and years? Gone they are, never to return; gone the little alloted span of life; gone the little day in which a man must work.Who can measure the irrevocable guilt of a wasted life? Yet even for such guilt God has provided a fountain of cleansing in the precious blood of Christ. God has clothed us with Christ’s righteousness as with a garment; in Christ we stand spotless before the judgment throne.”
