Brent: penitence, pardon, and peace

Monday, November 20, 2023
    Feast of Edmund of the East Angles, Martyr, 870
    Commemoration of Priscilla Lydia Sellon, a Restorer of the Religious Life in the Church of England, 1876
    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
    —1 John 1:9 (KJV)
    Peace comes when there is no cloud between our lives and God. Peace is the consequence of forgiveness, God’s removal of that which obscures His face, and [so] breaks union with Him. The happy sequence culminating in fellowship with God is penitence, pardon, and peace—the first we offer, the second we accept, and the third we inherit.
    ... Charles H. Brent (1862-1929), With God in Prayer, London: Jacobs & Co., 1907, p. 53 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 1:9; Deut. 7:9; Ps. 51:1-2; Eze. 34:25; 37:26; 1 Cor. 1:9; Tit. 2:12-14; Heb. 13:20; 1 John 1:3,7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me a penitent spirit, forgiveness, and peace in Your Son, Jesus Christ.
