Sunday Considerations: Remember and Rejoice

Post image for Sunday Considerations: Remember and Rejoice

Believer, the hour is fresh in our memory when the divorce was signed between ourselves and our lusts. We can rejoice that we have now dissolved our league with hell. But, oh, how much we owe to sovereign grace! for we had never left the garlic and fleshpots of Egypt if the Passover had not been slain for us. Our inward man rejoiceth greatly at the recollection of the hour which proclaimed eternal war between “the new creature in Christ Jesus” and the sin which reigneth unto death. It was a night to be remembered: we crossed the Rubicon—peace was broken—old friendships ceased—the sword was unsheathed, and the scabbard thrown away. We were delivered from the power of darkness, and brought into “the kingdom of God’s dear Son;” and henceforth we no longer serve sin, but the life which we live in the flesh is a life of dependence on the Son of God, who loved us and gave himself for us. Let us testify that we never knew what it was to have peace with God until we had ceased to parley with sin Not one drop of true comfort did we receive until we had foresworn for ever the former lusts of on ignorance: till then our mouths were filled with wormwood and gall, until we had cast out our iniquities as loathsome and abominable; but now, having renounced the works of darkness, “we have peace with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom also we have received the atonement.” ~ Charles Spurgeon. The Saint and His Saviour, page 75-76.
