MacDonald: coming out of his sins

Monday, August 27, 2012
    Feast of Monica, Mother of Augustine of Hippo, 387
    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)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I abandon my sins.
