HE WILL NOT CAST US OFF
by Ryle, "Ruler of the Waves"
The Lord Jesus will not cast away His believing
people because of shortcomings and infirmities.
The husband does not put away his
wife because he finds failings in her.
The mother does not forsake her infant
because it is weak, feeble and ignorant.
And the Lord Christ does not cast off poor sinners
who have committed their souls into His hands,
because He sees in them blemishes and imperfections.
Oh, no, it is His glory to pass over the faults of His
people, and heal their backslidings, to make much of
their weak graces, and to pardon their many faults.
