All of Grace

I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy. I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. Romans 9:15

The greatest preface ever written
—a Divine act as Creation, or Providence, or Resurrection
—a garment without seam, woven from the top throughout

When it comes unto us, is like
a firebrand dropped into the sea where
it would certainly be quenched were
it not of such a miraculous quality that
it baffles the water and sets up
its reign of fire and light even in the depths!

This live coal from off the altar can
only be gripped by the hands of faith.

—it kills and makes alive!

“Not as the world gives, give I unto you,”

—Adapted from a sermon All of Grace delivered by C. H. Spurgeon at the Metropolitan Tabernacle , Newington
