My Sins are Pardoned

And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.” —Isaiah 33:24

Charles Haddon SpurgeonThough God should give us dainties from day to day, and clothe us in scarlet and fine linen, and set us among the princes of the earth, we should be restless, we should be wretched as long as sin preyed upon our heart. Sin! this casts darkness upon the sun, eclipsing its meridian light. Sin is the blast which withers all the flowers of life. Sin is the gall of bitterness; a drop of it would turn an ocean of pleasure into wormwood. Sin would again blight Paradise, could it be restored; yea, it would turn heaven into hell could it enter there. Sin is a burden which an awakened conscience cannot bear, it crushes the spirit into the dust, and threatens further to bear it down, even to the lowest hell. But when sin is pardoned, then our hymn which we have just now been singing leaps joyfully to our lips—

“Now, oh joy! my sins are pardoned.”

Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)
Delivered Sunday Morning, June 20, 1886
at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington
Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, Vol. 32, Sermon No. 1905

  1. Though our sins may be pardoned, this is no reason for us to commit again and again. We should always try to become a better person each day.
