from Spurgeonís sermon, SONS OF GOD

If we are born into Godís family, it is a miracle of mercy!
It is one of the ever-blessed exhibitions of the infinite love
of God which without any cause in us, has set itself upon us.

If you are this day an heir of heaven, remember you were
once the slave of hell. Once you wallowed in the mire.

If you should adopt a swine to be your child,
you could not then have performed an act of
greater compassion than when God adopted you!

And if an angel could exalt a gnat to equal dignity
with himself, yet the gain would not be such a one
as that which God has conferred on you.

He has taken you from the dunghill,
and he has set you among princes!
