Topic: Salvation

Do we know how our sins provoke God? How they grieve the Holy Ghost? How they weaken our graces? How they spoil our prayers? How they weaken faith? How they tempt Christ to be ashamed of us? And how they hold back good from us? And if we know not every one of these things to the full, how shall we know to the full the love of Christ which saveth us from them all?. [ALE]

The greater your sins are, the more you stand in need of a Saviour. The greater your burden is, the more you stand in need of one to help to bear it. The deeper the wound is, the more need there is of the surgeon; the more dangerous the disease is, the more need there is of the physician. [PRASD]

Christ as Mediator is necessary for God says to the sinner, ‘You are unworthy and unfit to come into the presence of God. You can neither justify nor excuse your wicked conduct. You are rejected. God will not even treat with you in your own name. He utterly abhors all your works, all your pleas, all your merits. You are condemned. You are vile. [ROOS]

Rebels argue, ‘If I am elected I shall be saved, do what I will. If not, I shall be damned, do what I can.’ Perverse sinner, will you begin where you should end? Is not the word before you? What saith it? ‘Repent and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out.’… Do not stand still disputing about your election, but set to repenting and believing. [ASGTH]
