echoes of thought in love with God through Christ crucified

Category: Quotes (page 1 of 67)

The great doctrine, the greatest of all, is this, that God, seeing men to be lost by reason of their sin, hath taken that sin of theirs and laid it upon his only begotten Son, making him to be sin for us, even him who knew no sin; and that in consequence of this transference of sin he that believeth in Christ Jesus is made just and righteous, ya, is made to be the righteousness of God in Christ. Christ was made sin that sinners might be made righteousness. That is the doctrine of the substitution of our Lord Jesus Christ on the behalf of guilty men.

—Charles H. Spurgeon
The Metropolitan Tabernacle, “The Heart of the Gospel,” Sermon 1910, 2 Cor 5:20–21.

Wherever we find the word of God purely preached and heard, and the sacraments administered according to the institution of Christ; there, it is not to be doubted, is a Church of God.

— John Calvin
Institutes, III.iii.18.

It is important to bear in mind that the church … may never be conceived of apart from the organization of the people of God in visible expression and in discharge of the ordinances instituted by Christ.

—John Murray
Collected Writings of John Murray, 1:236.

Many low and carnal considerations may work men to watch their words, their lives, their actions; as hope of gain, or to please friends, or to get a name in the world, and many other such like considerations. Oh! but to watch our thoughts, to weep and lament over them, etc., this must needs be from some noble, spiritual, and internal principle, as love to God, a holy fear of God, a holy care and delight to please the Lord.

—Charles H. Spurgeon

Cor meum tibi offero, Domine, prompte et sincere.

“My heart I offer to you, O Lord, promptly and sincerely”

“I offer my heart to you, O Lord, eagerly and earnestly”
