Celebrating the Excellencies of His Name -Savior by C.H. Spurgeon-

 17.12.11

Source Art for Christ



The following is from Spurgeon's, Christ's Incarnation, the Foundation of Christianity.

"Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen." Galatians 1:3-5

That is a wonderful text in Galatians 1:4,
did you ever meditate upon it?
"Who gave Himself for our SINS..."

Jesus never gave Himself for our RIGHTEOUSNESS,
but He did give Himself for our SINS!

Sin is a horrible evil, a deadly poison, yet
it is this which gives Jesus His title of Savior
when He overcomes it. What a wonder this is!

The first link between my soul and Christ is-
not my goodness, but my badness;
not my merit, but my misery;
not my standing, but my falling;
not my riches, but my need.
He comes to visit His people, yet not to admire
their beauties, but to remove their deformities;
not to reward their virtues, but to forgive their sins.

Fully, Entirely and Perfectly!
The following is from Spurgeon's book, "Christ's
Incarnation, the Foundation of Christianity"

"You Shall Call His Name Jesus: For He WILL SAVE
His People From Their Sins." Matthew 1:21

JESUS is nothing at all if He is not a SAVIOR.
He is anointed to this very end. His very Name is a
sham if He does not SAVE His people from their sins.

This Jesus of Nazareth, the King of kings, and Lord of
Lords, is the one and only Savior. 
 He, and none but He, shall save His people. 
He, and not another, shall save
them by His own act and deed. 
Singly and unaided, 
He shall save His people. 
Personally, and not by another,
in His own Name, 
and on His own behalf, 
He shall, by Himself, 
purge away His people's sins.

He shall do ALL the work, and leave none of it undone;
He shall begin it, carry it on, and complete it; and
therefore is His Name called Jesus, Savior, because He
Shall Fully, Entirely, and Perfectly, Save His People
from Their Sins!

Jesus Christ has come to seek and to save those who were
lost. If He does not save, He was born in vain, for the object
of His birth was the salvation of sinners. If He shall not
be a Savior, then His mission in coming to this earth has
missed its end, for its design was that lost sinners might
be saved.

Lost one, lost one, if there were news that 'an angel' had
come to save you, there might be some good cheer in it;
but there are better tidings still. God Himself has come!
The Infinite, the Almighty, has stooped from the highest
heaven that He may pick you up, a poor undone and
worthless worm!

They that know thy name will put their trust in thee.
Psalm 9: 10

The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
   the righteous man runs into it and is safe.

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
