For Sinners Only!
from Spurgeon's, "THE SINNER'S FRIEND"
Jesus Christ is come to seek and to save SINNERS. Electing
love has selected some of the worst to be made the best.
Redeeming love has bought, specially bought, many of the worst
to be the reward of the Savior's passion. Effectual grace calls
out and compels to come in, many of the vilest of the vile.
Christ endured, indeed, the hells of all for whom he died, the
torments, or the equivalent for the torments, which all of them
ought to have suffered-- the eternal wrath of God condensed
and put into one cup, too bitter for mortal tongue to know,
and then drained to its utmost dregs by his loving lips.
Beloved, this was love!! "Herein is love, that while we were yet
sinners, in due time Christ died for the ungodly." "Greater love
has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."
