O Sinner, Could He Refuse Thee?

But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us…- Titus 3:4, 5

God must punish sin, every transgression must receive its just recompense of reward; but, lo, Christ has come, and as the scape-goat He has carried sin away; as the sin-offering He has removed transgression. Is not this good news? But I hear you say that your sins are too many and great. Do you then foolishly think that Christ is a sin-bearer for the innocent? That would be ridiculous. Do you suppose that Christ bore little sins only? That is to make Him a little Savior. Beware of this. Nay, but mountain sins, heaven-defying sins, were laid on Him when He hung upon the tree, and for these He made effectual atonement.

Perhaps, one of your greatest difficulties is that you cannot pray. You say, “I cannot put a dozen words together; if I groan, I fear I do not feel in my heart what I ought to feel.” Well, there is One who can pray for you if you cannot for yourself. Give Him your cause to plead, and do not doubt but that it shall succeed.

Think of His character as the meek and lowly Savior. Little children loved Him; He called them and they willingly came, for He was meek and lowly of heart. O sinner, could He refuse thee? Do you think He could give you a hard word and send you about your business, if you were to seek mercy today? It could not be; it is not in the nature of Him, who is both the Son of God and the Son of Man, ever to repel a heart that fain would cling to Him. Until He has once acted harshly to a coming sinner, you have no right to dream of His rejecting you, if you come to Him.~ C.H. Spurgeon
