This morning Spurgeon contemplates whether Christians should concern themselves with little sin or only the large matters in life. He makes it very clear that even the littlest sin is enough to eternally separate us from the holiness of God.
“Will not continual droppings [of rain] wear away stones?” (Spurgeon, p. 142)
I’m pretty sure I can’t break too many rocks in half with my hands but it’s amazing to think that a constant rain could. You can barely feel them when raindrops land on you as it begins to rain, but the same water can destroy hard surfaces. How similar it is to get unfazed by what seems to be insignificant sins. Before we know it we can be destroyed by the small things we overlooked early on.
Enjoy reading the evening session as Spurgeon discusses being sought out by God. We did not seek him, he came after us who were lost. Why did God do it? Spurgeon provides the only sufficient answer,
“That any should be sought out is matchless grace, but that we should be sought out is grace beyond degree! We can find no reason for it but God’s own sovereign love…” (Spurgeon, p. 143; emphasis added)
Praise God who searched for us, purchased our redemption through Christ Jesus our Lord then transfered us from a prison of darkness to a life of brilliant light.
