This is a weekly series with things I’m reading and pondering from Charles Spurgeon. You can read the original seed thought here, or type “Thursdays With Spurgeon” in the search box to read more entries.
Never Beyond God’s Love
Lost, perishing sinners, hear the voice of God, for it speaks to you.
“Where art thou? for I am come to seek thee.”
“Lord, I am in such a place that I cannot do anything for myself.”
“Then I am come to seek thee and do all for thee.”
“Lord, I am in such a place that the law threatens me and justice frowns upon me.”
“I am come to answer the threatenings of the law, and to bear all the wrath of justice.”
“But, Lord, I am in such a place that I cannot repent as I would.”
“I am come to seek thee, and I am exalted on high to give repentance and remission of sins.”
“But, Lord, I cannot believe in Thee, I cannot believe as I would.”
“A bruised reed I will not break, and a smoking flax will I not quench; I am come to give thee faith.”
“But, Lord, I am in such a state that my prayers can never be acceptable.”
“I am come to pray for thee, and then to grant thee thy desires.”
“But, Lord, Thou dost not know what a wretch I am.”
“Yes, I know thee. Though I asked thee the question, ‘Where art thou?’ it was that thou mightest know where thou art, for I know well enough.”
“But, Lord, I have been the chief of sinners; none can have so aggravated their guilt as I have.”
“But wherever thou mayest be, I have come to save thee.”
“But I am an outcast from society.”
“But I am come to gather together the outcasts of Israel.”
“O but I have sinned beyond all hope.”
“Yes, but I have come to give hope to hopeless sinners.”
“But, then I deserve to be lost.”
“Yes, but I have come to magnify the law and make it honorable, and so to give thee thy deserts in the person of Christ, and then to give thee My mercy because of His merits.” —Charles Spurgeon
My friend, there isn’t anything you can do to make God love you any less or any more—God IS Love. You are never beyond His love!
There is never a hole so deep, or a burden so heavy that God cannot rescue you—God IS All-mighty. You are never beyond His rescue!
You cannot escape the powerful love of your Heavenly Father. Jesus purchased your salvation with His blood, and the Holy Spirit is calling to your heart today. Will you come to Him in faith? O, please, my friend, receive God’s love today!
