Spurgeon: law and grace

Sunday, January 10, 2021
    [Jesus:] I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
    —Luke 15:7 (NIV)
    The law is for the self-righteous, to humble their pride: the gospel is for the lost, to remove their despair.
    ... Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), All of Grace, New York: R. Carter, 1886, p. 14 (see the book)
    See also Luke 15:7; Lam. 3:18-22; Mark 2:16-17; John 9:39-41; 2 Cor. 4:8-9; 1 Tim. 1:15; Heb. 12:12-13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have convinced me of sin in my life.
