Spurgeon, "THE WEDDING WAS FURNISHED WITH GUESTS"
The most mournful spectacle in the world is a heart which
refuses the mercy of God. I do not know what adjective can be
too strong to describe human depravity when I perceive that it
refuses God under his loveliest aspect-- God in the greatness
of his love, God sparing not his own Son.
If men turn away from God in his anger I can understand it;
if men turn aside from God in his justice I can understand it; but
when they so hate God that they will not even have his salvation,
when they refuse pardon through the precious blood of Christ,
when they will sooner be damned than reconciled to God, this
shows that their heart is desperately wicked.
The cross rejected is the clearest proof of the heart depraved!
