C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

Has Anyone Seen Grace?

When you think of grace, what is the first thing that comes to mind?

Now that you have most likely thought of how and/or when you have received grace, can you think of a time when you have given grace?

What about to that person you are mad at? You know, the one that has offended or hurt you, the one that doesn't deserve it? What about that sinner with the long hair or short skirt, the one with the foul mouth or with three kids out of wedlock, or the one that lives in a foreign land that serves a false god?

Did you do something to deserve or merit it?

Then why are you waiting on someone else before you give it?

Do we really need to keep all the grace to ourselves and not share it?

God isn't selfish. I think He will give us more when we need it.

Do you think you can find a little grace to give to someone you don't think deserves it?

You do? Give it! Make the effort!

You don't? God help you! I hope God doesn't withhold it from you.

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
