C.H. spurgeon

The Law is the needle, and you cannot draw the silken thread of the Gospel through a man's heart, unless you first send the needle of the Law through the center thereof, to make way for it. If men do not understand the Law, they will not feel that they are sinners; and if they are not consciously sinners, they will never value the sin-offering There is no healing a man till the Law has wounded him, no making him alive till the Law has slain him. 


I verily used to think concerning myself that I was a quiet, good, hopeful lad, addicted much to reading, seldom in brawls, and doing nobody any hurt. Oh! it was the outside of the cup and the platter I had seen; and when I was led by grace to look inside, I was astonished to see what filthiness was there. When I heard in my heart that sentence of the Law, "It shall be perfect to be accepted," I gave up all hope of self-righteousness; and now I hate myself for having doted upon such a falsehood as that I could be acceptable with God in myself. 


(John 20:20)  "And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord."

What it was that made the disciples glad
Robert Murray M'Cheyne 1813 1843
It was the sense they had got that his work was finished. When they saw his hands and his side, they saw his work was all completed. They saw the holy Lamb standing before them - he who had been so lately pierced - with the mark of the spear still in his side. They saw the meaning of that passage in Isaiah 53:5: 'But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him: and with his stripes we are healed.' When Peter looked upon him, he understood those words he afterwards wrote down - 'Who his own self, bare our sins in his own body on the tree' (I Peter 2:24). They saw that all the wrath due to them was poured out on Jesus; their debt was paid to the uttermost farthing, and no wonder, then, they were glad. Christ had finished the work the Father had given him to do. That prophecy in Daniel was fulfilled: 'The Messiah shall be cut off, but not for himself' (9:26); 'To finish transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness' (9:24).

Ah, brethren! it was this that made the disciples glad; they saw that all they ought to suffer was suffered for them: They entered into peace. 'Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord.' They were to be sad no more. Ah! do not many of you look to yourselves? You do not belong to Christ. You are only glad when you look to your own righteousness. But the disciples were glad when they saw Jesus as the Lord their righteousness. It was then, and only then, that they were glad. Oh when will you be glad? When will you have true joy? 0 sinner! look to Jesus. It is only when we see that he has suffered all, and done all we had to do, that we are glad - that our joy will be full. 


Charitie Lees Smith (18411923) 

The Advocate 

Before the throne of God above,
I have a strong a perfect plea;
The Great High Priest, whose name is love,
Will ever live and plead for me.

My name is graven on His hands;
My name is written on His heart;
I know that while in heav'n He reigns,
No tongue can bid me to depart.

Because the sinless Saviour died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God, the Just, is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me.

Behold Him there, the worthy Lamb!
My perfect, spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable "I AM,"
The king of glory and of grace.

(Tune:  Doxology) 


(2 Peter 1:2-4)  "Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature."
