I have heard of William Gadsby, of Manchester, that, travelling on a coach one day, he asked two heretical divines to tell him how a sinner is justified in the sight of God. "No," said they, "you don't catch us in that fashion. Whatever answer we gave you, would be repeated all over Manchester within a week." "Oh," says he, "then I will tell you. A sinner is justified in the sight of God by faith in the blood and righteousness of Jesus Christ. Go and tell that all over Manchester, and all over England, as quickly as you like; for I believe nothing that I am ashamed of."

Mercy is, properly speaking, the name of Jesus. For David, speaking of grace, and pleading for it before the Lord, saith as an argument and plea for receiving it, "There is mercy (that is, there is Jesus Christ) with Thee," Psalm 130:4. And when Zacharias prophesied, under the influence of God the Holy Ghost, at the coming of Christ, he said it was "to perform the mercy promised," Luke 1: 72. The Lord Jesus is that MERCY promised! 


C.H. Spurgeon

According to the freewill scheme, the Lord intends good; but He must wait like a lackey on His own creature to know what his intentions are; God willeth good and would do it, but He cannot because He has an unwilling man who will not have God's good thing carried into effect. What do ye, sirs, but drag the Eternal from His throne and lift up into it that fallen creature, man; for man, according to that theory, nods and his nod is destiny. You must have a destiny somewhere; it must either be as God wills or as man wills. If it be as God wills, then Jehovah sits as sovereign upon His throne of glory, and all hosts obey Him, and the world is safe. If not God, then you put man there to say, "I will," or "I will not; if I will it, I will enter heaven; if I will it, I will conquer the Holy Spirit, for I am stronger than God and stronger than omnipotence; if I will it, I will make the blood of Christ of no effect, for I am mightier than the blood, mightier than the blood of the Son of God Himself; though God make His purpose, yet will I laugh at His purpose; it shall be my purpose that shall make His purpose stand or fall." Why, sirs, if this be not atheism, it is idolatry; it is putting man where God should be. And I shrink with solemn awe and horror from the doctrine which makes the grandest of God's work - the salvation of man - to be dependent upon the will of His creature whether it shall be accomplished or not. Glory I can and must in my text in its fullest sense: "It is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God That sheweth mercy" (Romans 9:16)


"Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into HIS rest, any of you should seem to come short of it" (Hebrews 4:1). Resting in Christ and His finished work is the life of faith. Looking continually to Christ as the Author and Finisher of our faith is the walk of faith. Being kept by the power of God in Christ unto final glory is the triumph of faith.



What sacred Fountain yonder springs

Up from the throne of God,

And all new cov'nant blessings brings?

'Tis Jesus' precious blood! 

What mighty sum paid all my debt

When I a bondman stood,

And has my soul at freedom set?

'Tis Jesus' precious blood! 

What stream is that which sweeps away

My sins just like a flood,

Nor lets one guilty blemish stay?

'Tis Jesus' precious blood! 

What voice is that which speaks for me

In heav'n's high court for good,

And from the curse has set me free?

'Tis Jesus' precious blood!  

(Tune: "O For A Thousand Tongues")  


(Proverbs 3:5-6)  "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
