The Matchless Love of God January 4, 2007

I received the following devotion today, thought yall might enjoy it…

We have actually outsinned thousands

(Thomas Brooks, “The Unsearchable Riches of Christ”)

Sit down and wonder at the matchless love of God.

Oh! what is in us—that should cause the Lord to give such
gifts to us as He has given? We were all equal in sin and
misery; nay, doubtless, we have actually outsinned
thousands
, to whom these precious gifts are denied. Let
us therefore sit down and wonder at this condescending
love of God. Oh! we were once poor wretches sitting upon
the ash-heap, yes, wallowing in our blood—and yet behold!
The King of kings, the Lord of lords, has so far condescended
in His love, as to bestow Himself, His Spirit, His grace, and
all the jewels of His royal crown upon us! Oh! what heart can
conceive, what tongue can express, this matchless love!

“I will be yours forever,” says Christ, “and My Spirit shall
be yours forever, and My grace yours forever, and My glory
yours forever, and My righteousness yours forever. All I am
and all I have—shall be yours forever!” O what matchless
love is this! Oh! what a Christ is this!

Oh the thought of me out sinning others should make me crinch, and yet the thought or Christ life for mine and God’s love for me makes me thankful and humbly bowing unto Him.
