If you have not had the opportunity to read “Grace, God‘s Unmerited Favor” then I would highly recommend it because it is a great use of your time. As is the case with all of Spurgeons sermons. The descriptive words and challenging thoughts will cause you to consider your ways and rely on our Creator. I’ve share this book with a number of my friends and consider it a great resource. I bought this book during a special time in my life, the time I first met Charlie Tremendous Jones. This man encouraged me to read books and out of the wealth of selection he had in his library I chose this book and it has inspired me in my walk with the Lord and has been used to also motivate others. Consider this thought from his book.
“God’s Word elsewhere commands, “Wash you, make you clean” (Isaiah 1:16). That is your duty. However, here you are told that the Lord will wash you and make you clean. This is your privilege. “Ye are clean,” said Christ to His disciples, “Through the word which I have spoken unto you” (John 15:3). That is “the washing of water by the word” (Ephesians 5:26) of which Paul wrote to the church at Ephesus.
The free-grace covenant runs like this: “Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean.” The Lord sprinkles this “clean water” on the leprous and the polluted sinner, on the man who lies covered with his own blood, a filthy thing in the sight of God, and loathsome to Him. When GOd Himself says, “Ye shall be clean,” I know that we are clean, for He is the best judge of true cleanliness. His pure and holy eyes detect every spot of sin and every latent trace of disease. Though it may be deep within the heart, He can spy it out; but He says, “I will sprinkle you, and you shall be clean”
I highly recommend this book. The word pictures will cause you to see yourself in an entirely new light. The Grace of God is so abundant to us though we have offended him many times. He still stretches out his grace and mercy to us. Please consider getting yourself a copy of this book. It can change your life.
