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."

Christ Bore the Cross

To the hill of Golgotha, Christ bore the cross
The Lord and Savior, humbly walked
With a crown of thorns, upon his brow
Submitting to God's will, he carried it out
The people stared and laughed at him, as he walked by
They cursed and spat upon his face, as he looked them in the eye
Blood poured down from wounds, for he was beaten by cruel men
Barely able to be recognized, he was the only man innocent
Though some believed most did not, this was the King of kings
The Son of God, the Savior, the creator of all things
If they had known or understood, they may have accepted Christ
But it was written before time, for our sins he must die
Nails drove in his hands and feet, a spear thrust through his side
Yet looking over all the people, "Forgive them" still he cried
Rejected by man and forsaken by God, Christ hung upon the tree
But through it all a man got saved, he was one of two thieves
There also stood a soldier man, that claimed "Truly he must be"
The Son of God he recognized, for God had opened his eyes to see
To fight the power of death and hell, the Savior had to die
To cleanse our soul to take our blame, the Lord was crucified
By sending the Holy Spirit, to indwell us here on earth
A promise to work in our being, till death from our new birth
Kept by the power of God, sealed by the Holy Spirit
Bought with the blood of Jesus Christ, we'll see when he appeareth
Sometimes we take for granted, the salvation we've been given
For what have we lost to receive it, yet Christ had to leave heaven
God could have destroyed us in the garden, or in the flood of Noah's day
Slew the people at the tower of Babel, or ended it all another way
But thanks to his mercy and his grace, he had a plan for his creation
Christ knew he would walk the way of the cross, before he laid the foundation
What love of the Savior we have been given, freely without merit
God knew we would sin and made provision, and through his Son he gave it
Through the choice of man, sin has come in and cursed the human race
By the choice of Christ, he has paid the price to save us by God's grace
So when pride comes in and you're lifted up, believing you have attained
Remember salvation is a gift of God, and it was your sin why Christ was slain

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.
