CQOD: 06/02/07 -- Spurgeon: law and grace

Christian Quotation of the Day

June 2, 2007
    When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the "sinners" and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: "Why does he eat with tax collectors and 'sinners'?" On hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
    -- Mark 2:16,17 (NIV)

    The law is for the self-righteous, to humble their pride: the gospel is for the lost, to remove their despair.
    ... Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892), "All of Grace"

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have shown me my sin and my redemption.
