“O LORD, pardon my iniquity, for it is great.” Psalm 25:11
“Where sin abounded, grace abounded much more.” Romans 5:20
“For He will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:7
It is all one with God to forgive a repenting sinner his trespasses, whether great or small, many or few, for they are all atoned for with one ransom. No sin, properly speaking, is little in itself. And none is greater than the grace of God and the infinite price laid down for it.
Whatever sins, therefore, a man feels, he may throw himself upon the abounding grace of God. This grace must also be our comfort, to depend upon alone, even when it is best with us, For then only it is best with us when we depend alone on grace and live in it, as in our element. Grace brings salvation, purifies our nature, and makes us fit for Heaven. It begins, it carries on, and it will complete our restoration to God’s image. Grace can do anything for a sinner because it acts freely, and a sinner may expect anything from grace because it seeks only its own glory. If sin is a river, grace is an ocean — and the river is not more swallowed up in the ocean, but the sins of a believer are swallowed up in grace. O my soul, admire, adore, and rejoice in free and sovereign grace!
What though your numerous sins exceed
The stars that fill the skies.
And, aiming at th’ eternal throne,
Like pointed mountains rise!
See, here an endless ocean flows
Of never-failing grace;
Behold a dying Savior’s veins.
The sacred flood increase!
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
