A Letter From Lucy

Those of you who frequent this blog, know that Lucy signs her name Babalucy, a combination of the name her grandchildren call her and her name. She sent the following letter to the Jackson Press and they ran it on their web page. I thought I would share Lucy’s words her as well.

I read a quote this morning and wanted to share it with you this Easter week-end.

J.  C. Ryle  wrote the following:

“You see the  Eternal SON of GOD suffering, bleeding, agonizing, dying, in  order to pay your soul’s debt and make satisfaction for your sins…Nothing but CHRIST’s atonement on the cross can ever clear up these things… Your own…repentance, your own morality and regularity, your own churchgoing and sacrament-receiving, your own Bible- reading and your prayers, your own giving and your charities- what are they all but a huge mass of imperfection?…As grounds of acceptance with GOD, they are worthless rubbish…they cannot bear the weight of your sins… Rest on nothing but CHRIST crucified, and the atonement HE made for you on Calvary.”

This was written in the 1800’s but is so true for today.

Nothing but the blood of JESUS can cleanse us from our sins.  It is not by works that we are saved but by JESUS only.

Happy Easter.

Because of HIM, we live,


Well said Lucy. Happy Easter.

  1. Praise the LORD ! I sent this letter to several friends, one who publishes the Jackson Press and I did not know he was going to put it in his paper. He added a picture which I would not have done but Praise the LORD that the truth is getting out
    HE is Risen= HE is RISEN Indeed!!!!!!.


  2. Lucy and Tim, this is so beautiful and well put. Our risen Savior gives us an expected hope there is a beautiful life beyond this life. PRAISE the LORD! HE IS RISEN!!! There is “Victory in Jesus.”
