Hidden Treasures

The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

Pardoned

Dr. Harry Rimmer tells of a case in Pennsylvania in which a man was granted a pardon from prison by the governor, but he would not accept it. The prison officials were in a dilemma. What do you do when a man is granted a pardon and he will not accept it?

Finally an appeal was made to the judge, and he said, "The man will have to stay in prison. A person has to accept the pardon before he can be free."

In the Lord Jesus Christ we have forgiveness of sins and a pardon for our iniquities, but we have to accept it. Have you accepted your pardon yet? Are you delivered from the penalty and power of sin?
