Spurgeon: the grand fact

Monday, November 9, 2015
    Commemoration of Margery Kempe, Mystic, after 1433
    In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.
    —Ephesians 1:7-8 (NIV)
    The grandest fact under heaven is this—that Christ by his precious blood does actually put away sin, and that God, for Christ’s sake, dealing with men on terms of divine mercy, forgives the guilty and justifies them, not according to anything that he sees in them or foresees will be in them, but according to the riches of his mercy which lie in his own heart.
    ... Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), All of Grace, New York: R. Carter, 1886, p. 22 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 1:7-8; Ps. 25:7; 103:10; Matt. 1:21; 1 Cor. 15:3-5; Gal. 1:3-5; 1 Tim. 1:15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your mercy is full.
