“Thus far did I come laden with my sin,
Nor could aught ease the grief that I was in,
Till I came hither. What a place is this!
Must here be the beginning of my bliss?
Must here the burden fall from off my back?
Must here the strings that bound it to me crack?
Blest cross! blest sepulchre! blest rather be
The Man that there was put to shame for me!”
The above excerpt is from John Bunyan's "Pilgrims Progress".
Oh how sweet it is to be forgiven our sins and placed in communion with our blessed Redeemer. May that day that we knelt in our hearts before the cross of Christ ever be fresh in our minds and spirits!
