As I scanned the news this morning I noticed that the President had pardoned a list of people. The commentator noted that none of the people were well known and there was no explanation given as to why these particular people were granted a pardon from their prescribed punishment.
As I turned my attention to Our Lord Jesus Christ I was reminded that He had pardoned a list of people. I am thankful for the season of Lent that prepares me to be freshly impacted by His work on the cross.
I pictured the list of those who had been pardoned, for what warranted punishment by death, and I found my name on the list.
The reason was written in blood and read GRACE.
