Trust in the Mercy of God through the Death of Jesus Christ

For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. – Romans 5:6

Those of us who can address thousands should be diligent to cry aloud-“Christ died for the ungodly”; but those of you who can speak to one, or write a letter to one, must keep on at this-“Christ died for the ungodly.” Shout it out, or whisper it out; print it in capitals, or write it in a lady’s hand-“Christ died for the ungodly.” Speak it solemnly, it is not a thing for jest. Speak it joyfully; it is not a theme for sorrow, but for joy. Speak it firmly; it is indisputable fact. Facts of science, as they call them, are always questioned: this is unquestionable. Speak it earnestly; for if there be any truth which ought to arouse all a man’s soul it is this: “Christ died for the ungodly.” Speak it where the ungodly live, and that is at your own house. Speak it also down in the dark corners of the city, in the haunts of debauchery, in the home of the thief, in the den to the depraved. Tell it in the gaol; and sit down at the dying bed and read in a tender whisper-“Christ died for the ungodly.” When you pass the harlot in the street, do not give a toss with that proud head of yours, but remember that “Christ died for the ungodly”; and when you recollect those that injured you, say no bitter word, but hold your tongue, and remember “Christ died for the ungodly.” Make this henceforth the message of your life-“Christ died for the ungodly.”

And, oh, dear friends, you that are not saved, take care that you receive this message. Believe it. Go to God with this on your tongue-“Lord save me, for Christ died for the ungodly, and I am of them.” …Accept this truth, my dear hearer, and you are saved. “Christ died for the ungodly”…Trust in the mercy of God through the death of Jesus Christ, and a new era in your life’s history will at once commence. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
