MacDonald: coming out of his sins

Tuesday, August 9, 2022
    Feast of Mary Sumner, Founder of the Mothers’ Union, 1921
    Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
    “No one, sir,” she said.
    “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
    —John 8:10-11 (NIV)
    I believe that no man is ever condemned for any sin except one—that he will not leave his sins and come out of them, and be the child of him who is his father.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), “Justice”, in Unspoken Sermons, Third Series, London: Longmans, Green, 1889, p. 154-155 (see the book)
    See also John 8:3-11; Neh. 9:28; Pr. 28:13; Luke 5:32; John 5:14; Rom. 5:20-21; 1 Pet. 4:3-5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I abandon my sins.
