A Daily Devotion from Reasons for Hope*Jesus

“In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:14

“Having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.” Colossians 2:13-14

Have you, O my soul, felt the weight of your own guilt and misery, and been enabled, in reality and truth — to lay hold by faith, of the blood of Christ for your redemption? Then you have a sure foundation to build upon; let it be your constant care firmly to depend upon the blessed declarations of the gospel; repair to Christ for everything you need.

Has He brought life and immortality to light? Then look unto Him and live.

Is there redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins? Then, notwithstanding all your guilt — rely cheerfully upon His atonement.

Has He blotted out the handwriting of ordinances that was against you? Then shake off self-righteous dependences and legal fears also.

Did He die for your sins? Then let His goodness and love, lead you to sincere repentance. Then let the sense of your sins break your heart — and encourage your hope in the gospel.

In Jesus is all you need — and all that is in Jesus is for you. Bless His holy name!
