Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners.--Charles Spurgeon, All of Grace (rev. ed.; Moody, 2010), 27; italics original
It is a very surprising thing, a thing to be marveled at most of all by those who enjoy it. I know that it is to me, even to this day, the greatest wonder that I ever heard of that God should ever justify me. I feel myself to be a lump of unworthiness, a mass of corruption, and a heap of sin apart from his almighty love. I know and am fully assured that I am justified by faith which is in Christ Jesus, and I am treated as if I had been perfectly just. . . .
Who can help being astonished at this? Gratitude for such favor stands dressed in robes of wonder.
