Covet therefore that everlasting gift, that one thing which it is certain is going to stand, that one coinage which will be current in the universe when all other coinages of all the nations of the world shall be useless and unhonored.” Henry Drummond

Fydor Dostoyevsky caught the shock and scandal of the gospel of grace when he wrote:‘At the last judgement Christ will say to us, “Come, you also! Come drunkards! Come weaklings! Come children of shame!”  And he will say to us: “Vile beings, you who are in the image of the beast and bear his mark, but come all the same, you as well.” And the wise and  prudent will say, “Lord, why do you welcome them?” And he will say: “If I welcome them, you wise men, if I welcome them, you prudent men, it is because not one of them has ever been judged worthy,”  And he will stretch out his arms, and we will fall at his feet and we will cry out sobbing, and then we will understand all, we will understand the Gospel of grace!  Lord, your Kingdom come!”Romans 2:4 Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness leads you toward repentance?

It’s far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest dreams and ambitions. If you want to know why you were placed on this planet, you must begin with God. You were born BY His purpose and FOR His purpose.” — Rick Warren

Knowing that it was his duty to give thanks in everything, he meditated on this incident and recorded in his diary the following:Let me be thankful, first, because he never robbed me before; second, because although he took my purse, he did not take my life; third, because although he took all I possessed, it was not much; and fourth, because it was I who was robbed, not I who robbed.Matthew Henry (1662-1714)English Non-conformist Bible commentator

“If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they will perish, let them perish with our arms around their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for. – C.H. Spurgeon.
