I rejoice this morning in Christ, my Mediator! I’m thankful that Spurgeon has caused me to reflect on the glory of my redemption and at the wonder of imputed righteousness. I’m reminded that Christ does not plead my good works before the Father… but rather points to “His side, His hands, His feet, and challenges Justice to bring anything against the sinners whom He represents”.
I’m reminded this morning of the great love of Christ… I’m humbled as I read this verse…
(Eph 3:17-21) so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith–that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
I want these truths to pierce my heart each day. I want to be blown away at all that Christ accomplished to redeem His people. I want to bow before Him in humility because He has loved me and allowed me to “know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge”!! Let us be humbled today as we meditate on the glory of Christ, our Mediator and our Savior.
As Spurgeon encourages us to do when our faith is weak… let us run to the cross of Christ and cling! By doing so, may He teach us to rely on His faithfulness and strength and finished work.
Let us clasp that cross, let us look into those languid eyes, let us bathe in that fountain filled with blood–this will bring back to us our first love; this will restore the simplicity of our faith, and the tenderness of our heart.
