Years ago on the stone coping that ran around the White House sat an old man. Threadbare clothes covered with dust made him a marked figure & tears were on his face.
A little boy rolling a hoop stopped & asked what the matter was. The bent form lifted & the sad tale was poured out to the child. His son in the Army of the Potomac had been arrested for desertion & condemned. The guards had not permitted the man to pass to President Lincoln.
"I can take you to the President," said the boy.
"Yes, he is my father. He lets me come in any time."
Thus it was the old man found the way to Lincoln & thus gained pardon for his son.
Thus it is that through Jesus Christ, the Son, we have access to God the Father.
John 3:17 (GW): "God sent his Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but to save the world."
John 20:31 (CEV): "But these are written so that you will put your faith in Jesus as the Messiah and the Son of God. If you have faith in him, you will have true life."
