The greatest wonder in Heaven, or earth, or even in Hell!
(Charles Spurgeon, "Open House for All Comers!")
"But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered: This man welcomes sinners and eats with them!" Luke 15:2
Jesus receives sinners into His heart's love! This is the greatest wonder in heaven, or earth, or even in Hell!
There is no marvel like the truth that He who ever lives, bowed His head to die for sinners; and having made atonement for sin, now receives the very chief of sinners into His heart's love, and makes us His companions and his friends!
He takes us from the dunghill — and wears us as jewels in His crown!
He plucks us as brands from the burning — and preserves us as precious monuments of His mercy!
None are so precious in His sight, as the sinners for whom He died!
