THE LOVE OF GOD TO HIS PEOPLE by Spurgeon!
from Spurgeon’s sermon,
“DEEP CALLETH UNTO DEEP”
Quietly study the depth of the love of God to you His people.
He has loved you without a cause. The grace of God is deeper than the depths of our sin, higher than the heights of our rebellion, broader and longer than the breadths and lengths of our depravity. Oh, the exceeding riches of the grace of God!
He has loved you without beginning. Before years, and centuries, and millenniums began to be counted, your name was on His heart. Eternal thoughts of love have been in God’s bosom towards you.
He has loved you without a pause. There never was a minute in which He did not love you. Your name once engraved upon His hands has never been erased, nor has He ever blotted it out of the Book of Life.
He has loved you most patiently. You have often provoked Him; you have rebelled against Him times without number, yet He has never stopped the outflow of His heart towards you; and, blessed be His name, He never will. You are His, and you always shall be His.
He has loved you without boundary. He could not love you more, for He loves you like a God; and He never will love you less. All His heart belongs to you! For you, Jesus left the throne of honor for the cross of shame; the brightness of glory for the darkness of the tomb.
Oh, the depths of the love which is revealed in Calvary!
The incomprehensible love of God is deeper than hell, and higher than heaven. It is as long as eternity, and wide as immensity.
You will never, never be able to fathom the depth of the love of God towards you, in the gift of His dear Son to be your Redeemer.
Oh, how ought I to love my God who has so loved me! Oh, how I ought to hate the sin which made my Savior bleed!
The agonies of Christ call us to the slaughter of our sins!
