In an age of limited travel and isolated nations, Charles Haddon Spurgeon preached to over 10,, people in person! In this classic work, he presents a clear and compelling message of salvationshowing man's ultimate need and God's unique provision.
Yet when we see grace in action — whether in acts of extravagant, indiscriminate love, in radical self-giving, or in showing equanimity in the face of death — it can move us unlike anything else. Your name. It is the unmerited favor of God, unconditional love given to the undeserving. Suppose I had to preach that you as sinners must do certain works, and then you would be saved; and suppose that you could perform them; such a salvation would not then have been seen to be altogether of grace; it would have soon appeared to be of debt. Spurgeon :: All of Grace.
A treasure for honest seekers and the believers who desire to reach them. Related Products. It is not a speculative thing; for faith believes facts of which it is sure. It is not an unpractical, dreamy thing; for faith trusts, and stakes its destiny upon the truth of revelation. Jesus uses the whole range of our experiences to wean us from earth and woo us to Heaven.
It is contrary to the laws of your mind to suppose that you can force your soul into that gracious state. Take your heart in prayer to Him who understands it and say, "Lord, cleanse it. Lord, renew it.
Lord, work repentance in it. However, if you believingly think of Jesus dying for you, repentance will burst forth. I am a wonder to myself. To love God and to love man is to be conformed to the image of Christ, and this is salvation. It may be very well to do this and that for good fellowship, but it will never do to lose the friendship of God in order to keep on good terms with men. Do not make any mistake about it; repentance is not a thing of days and weeks, a temporary penance to be got over as fast as possible!
No; it is the grace of a lifetime, like faith itself. God's little children repent, and so do the young men and the fathers. Repentance is the inseparable companion of faith. It is not the measure of faith, but the sincerity of faith, which is the point to be considered. Put your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, and He will take the stony heart out of your flesh, and He will give you a heart of flesh. Where everything was hard, everything shall be tender; where everything was vicious, everything shall be virtuous: where everything tended downward, everything shall rise upward with impetuous force.
The lion of anger shall give place to the lamb of meekness; the raven of uncleanness shall fly before the dove of purity; the vile serpent of deceit shall be trodden under the heel of truth.
Hope for this great thing; but hope for it as a gift of grace, and not as the wages of work, or as the product of your own energy. He would not be justified in neglecting tillage because the secret energy of God alone can create a harvest. No one is hindered in the ordinary pursuits of life by the fact that unless the Lord build the house they labor in vain that build it. It is also a blessing that, whatever strength these may have to ruin us, Jesus has still greater power to save us. He is faithful in His love; He knows no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
He is faithful to His purpose; He doth not begin a work and then leave it undone. He is faithful to His relationships; as a Father He will not renounce His children, as a friend He will not deny His people, as a Creator He will not forsake the work of His own hands.
The hand which receives charity does not say, 'I am to be thanked for accepting the gift'; that would be absurd. When the hand conveys bread to the mouth it does not say to the body, 'Thank me; for I feed you. So God has selected faith to receive the unspeakable gift of His grace, because it cannot take to itself any credit, but must adore the gracious God who is the giver of all good.
We are saved 'through faith,' but salvation is 'by grace'. Many fancy that so many tears are to be shed, and so many groans are to be heaved, and so much despair is to be endured. Whence comes this unreasonable notion? Unbelief and despair are sins, and therefore I do not see how they can be constituent elements of acceptable repentance; yet there are many who regard them as necessary parts of true Christian experience.
They are in great error. Still, I know what they mean, for in the days of my darkness I used to feel in the same way.
I desired to repent, but I thought that I could not do it, and yet all the while I was repenting. Odd as it may sound, I felt that I could not feel. I used to get into a corner and weep, because I could not weep; and I fell into bitter sorrow because I could not sorrow for sin.
What a jumble it all is when in our unbelieving state we begin to judge our own condition! It is like a blind man looking at his own eyes. My heart was melted within me for fear, because I thought that my heart was as hard as an adamant stone.
