Let us sit, this morning, and meditate on Christ’s work on the cross. Let’s meditate on the truth that we have been reconciled to God because Christ’s blood was shed and atoned for our sins. Let’s rejoice that all our sins are forgiven us for Christ’s sake and for His glory!
May we be humbled today because of Christ’s work to bring us to Himself. Humbled when we think of our atonement, our redemption, our reconciliation. I pray that no religious pride would be present as we rejoice and worship Him for the great things he has done…. for they are great and so is He!
My soul, sit down, and behold the justice of God as bound to punish sin; see that punishment all executed upon thy Lord Jesus, and fall down in humble joy, and kiss the dear feet of Him whose blood has made atonement for thee.
I love that quote from Spurgeon. I don’t know that we “behold the justice of God” enough. We should though… it’s a wonderful truth to behold. Reminds me of a verse in a song we just sang last Sunday.
Let us wonder grace and justice
Join and point to mercy’s store
When through grace in Christ our trust is
Justice smiles and asks no more
He, Who washed us with His blood
Has secured our way to God
I really don’t know where to start with this evening’s devotion. I should just copy and paste Spurgeon’s devotion and put a big smiley face at the end!
God’s sovereignty in our election, our redemption and our glorification.
Let us for a moment recount them, telling them over as misers count their gold.
Spurgeon’s thoughts this evening fill me with joy! We can take no credit for His everlasting love, His eternal purpose nor the everlasting covenant He has made with us. I am driven to humble worship this evening. I can do nothing else in light of these immutable truths.
Let us not neglect meditating on these things. I pray these topics are discussed often at our church. I encourage us all to read tonight’s devotion multiple times….. and worship!!
