Pure Grace

‎”The fact that God is pleased to forgive a sinner who repents is pure grace. Pure grace! It is perfectly true that God does not forgive impenitent sinners; he forgives penitent sinners. That he forgives penitent sinners is a matter of pure grace. For you see, the ground of that pardon is not in us or in our repentance, but it is in Christ. No amount of repentance can atone for sin that is past, it is only the blood of Jesus Christ that bears the penalty of sin and washes that sin from us.” -Norman Shepherd
