On the day before Thanksgiving this year, President Obama carried out the customary “Presidential Pardon” on a pair of turkeys this year. These turkeys will be sent to live out their days at Mount Vernon’s livestock facility. They will escape the fate of many of their cousins, who will be consumed on Thanksgiving Day.
It’s a great picture of what God has done for those who trust in Christ. Though many will perish because of their sins, others will live because of the divine pardon that God will grant to those who believe in Jesus. “There is therefore, now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1).
