I once read a story about a preacher’s son who was engaged to marry a woman in the church. She had been a woman of poor reputation before coming into the church and accepting Christ as her Lord and Savior. Her reputation preceded her. The church raised a fit over the engagement. They wouldn’t have their preacher’s son marrying a woman of poor reputation.

The young man addressed the church saying, we sing about the blood of Jesus washing away our sins.

We sing that it will wash us white as snow, and the Bible tells us the same.

We sing about this fount, and yet, do we really believe what we are saying?

Tears of repentance filled the church, and the wedding went on.
