The love of God to his people!
Spurgeon, "Deep Calleth unto Deep" #865
Quietly study the depth of the
love of God to you his people.
He has loved you without a cause.
The grace of God is deeper than the
depths of our sin, higher than the
heights of our rebellion, broader and
longer than the breadths and lengths
of our depravity. Oh, the exceeding
riches of the grace of God!
He has loved you without beginning.
Before years, and centuries, and
millenniums began to be counted,
your name was on his heart. Eternal
thoughts of love have been in God's
bosom towards you.
He has loved you without a pause.
There never was a minute in which he did
not love you. Your name once engraved
upon his hands has never been erased, nor
has he ever blotted it out of the Book of Life.
He has loved you most patiently.
You have often provoked him; you have
rebelled against him times without number,
yet he has never stopped the outflow of his
heart towards you; and, blessed be his name,
he never will. You are his, and you always
shall be his.
He has loved you without boundary.
He could not love you more, for he loves
you like a God; and he never will love you
less. All his heart belongs to you!
For you, Jesus left the throne of honor
for the cross of shame; the brightness
of glory for the darkness of the tomb.
Oh, the depths of the love
which is revealed in Calvary!
The incomprehensible love of God is deeper
than hell, and higher than heaven. It is as
long as eternity, and wide as immensity.
You will never, never be able to fathom the
depth of the love of God towards you, in the
gift of his dear Son to be your Redeemer.
Oh, how ought I to love my God who has
so loved me! Oh, how I ought to hate the
sin which made my Savior bleed!
The agonies of Christ call us
to the slaughter of our sins!
