The Precious Blood

A selection from a letter by Francis Ridley Havergal, to a clerical friend and his wife, written on Christmas day, 1873:

I do not know how one could bear the clearer sight of the sinfulness without the clearer sight, too, of the Precious Blood and its full cleansing power. I had only learnt half of 1 John 1:9, but oh how precious the “and” now is!

Letters by the Late Frances Ridley Havergal, edited by her sister, Maria V. G. Havergal, first published in 1885, reprinted by Kessinger Publishing, p. 138.
