“Sin is such a heavy thing, God only could lift it up, and put it upon his Son; and he only can lift it up from the conscience of a sinner laboring under a sense of it. A man himself cannot do it; and all the friends he has in the world cannot lift it up from the conscience, when it lies heavy there. It is God’s work; all that man can do will not move it. Neither the blood of bulls nor of goats, under the legal dispensation, could take away sin. All humiliation, repentance, tears, duties, and the like, cannot take away sin; no, it is the Lord alone that must do it: souls, therefore, are directed to him for the putting it away. He does (as before observed) put words in their months, and bids them say, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously (Hosea 14:2).” – John Gill, JEHOVAH’S PREROGATIVE AND HIS LOVE TO PUT AWAY THE SINS OF HIS PEOPLE
