The Bible saints were not the heroes of romance, for then they might have been painted spotless. They were the men of real life, and the details of that life sometimes guilty enough. But then, life was an earnest thing with them. It was transgression, if you will, but then it was sore, buffeting struggle after that. It was the penitence of men bent manfully on turning back to God. And so they fought their way back till they struggled out of the thick darkness into the clear light of day and peace. Let us lay this to heart. It is not the having been "far off" that makes peace impossible, it is anything which keeps a man away from Christ.—Robertson.
