Christ Died in Vain for No One

Lost man! Lost woman! Where are you? Do you feel yourself to be lost? I am so glad of it; for there is remission by the blood-shedding. O sinner, are there tears in your eyes? Look through them. Do you see that Man in the garden? That Man sweat drops of blood for you. Do you see that Man on the cross? That Man was nailed there for you. Oh! if I could be nailed on a cross this morning for you all, I know what you would do: you would fall down and kiss my feet, and weep that I should have to die for you. But sinner, lost sinner, Jesus died for you-for you; and if He died for you., you cannot be lost. Christ died in vain for no one. Are you, then, a sinner? Are you convinced of sin because you believe not in Christ? I have authority to preach to you. Believe in His name and you cannot be lost. Do you say you are no sinner? Then I do not know that Christ died for you. Do you say that you have no sins to repent of? Then I have no Christ to preach to you. He did not come to save the righteous; He came to save the wicked. Are you wicked? Do you feel it? Are you lost? Do you know it? Are you sinful? Will you confess it?…”Oh!” but you say, “I am such a sinner;” “Ah!” says He, “that is just why I died for you, because you are a sinner.” “But,” you say, “I do not deserve it.” “Ah !” says He, “that is just why I did it.” Say you, “I have hated Him.” “But,” says He, “I have always loved you.” “But, Lord, I have spat on Thy minister, and scorned Thy word.” “It is all forgiven,” says He, “all washed away by the blood which did run from My side. Only believe Me; that is all I ask. And that I will give you. I will help you to believe.” “Ah!” says one, “but I do not want a Saviour.” Sir, I have nothing to say to you except this-“The wrath to come! the wrath to come!” ~ C.H. Spurgen
