This Hindu devotee is one of hundreds of thousands of pilgrims
who bathe and offer prayers in hopes of washing away sins
during this month-long festival in India. (msn.com January 31, 2014)
Me? A sinner?
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves … (I John 1:8)
What can wash away my sin?
He (Christ/Emmanuel) is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. (I John 2:2)
There is a fountain filled with blood drawn from Emmanuel’s veins;
And sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains.1
How do I plunge beneath this flood?
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (I John 1:9)
