Out of black sinners!
(Charles Spurgeon, "The Singular Origin of a Christian Man")
Out of black sinners — God can make bright saints!
He can take hearts of stone away — and give hearts of flesh!
He can take the infidel — and create in him a mighty faith!
He can take the harlot — and make her a pattern of purity!
He can take the lowest of the low, and the vilest of the vile — and put them among the princes of His people!
"Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
And that is what some of you were! But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God." 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
