Ring Those Charming Bells on the Lord's Day

 27.3.11




"A Song Concerning Loving-kindnesses"
delivered on August 10th, 1873 by C. H. Spurgeon


"By the grace of God I am what I am!" 1 Cor. 15:10


All that we have received has come to us by the way
of free grace!
If our sense of our own unworthinessis clear,
if we know what worse than nothings we are,
what a mass of sin and corruption we are by nature,
we shall never think that we receive anything from
God by the way of merit.

Still our proud hearts need to be told over and over
again that all the blessings we enjoy come to us by
the free and sovereign grace of God!

The bread on your table is flavored with grace.

Your meat has mercy for its sauce.

Every drop of water which cools your tongue tastes of mercy.

Charity clothes you.

Infinite love feeds you.

And as for your spiritual blessings, where are your
streams found, whence do they gush--but from the
inexhaustible fountain of eternal love?

God forbid that we should glory save in the cross of
our Lord Jesus Christ-- and in the love which shone
from that cross to such poor,
unworthy ones as we are!

Those are charming bells indeed--
free grace and dying love!
Through the ivory gate of grace,
all mercies come to sinners.

"By the grace of God I am what I am!" 1 Cor. 15:10



Have a blessed Lord's day, dear friends.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
