Calvary Is A Standing Pledge

February 23, 2011

I love these thoughts from the Orthodox Presbyterian Church’s devotional for 2.15.11! (http://bit.ly/gbrwGx):

Bible Verse “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all, how will he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Rom. 8:32).

Devotional Look at the cross; behold his precious Gift affixed to it—by his own hand and for your sins. Then look at your present circumstances. Survey your needs, your trials, your chastisements, your bereavements, your heart-sickening, heartbreaking tribulations, and know that God is still Love. If God has love strong enough, deep enough, to give you Jesus—to tear him, as it were, from his own breast and to affix him to the accursed tree for your iniquities—does he not have love enough to incline his ear to your cry and his heart to your sorrow? Will he not rescue you from this difficulty, deliver you out of this trouble, shield you in this temptation, supply you this need, and support, help, and comfort you in this grief? Oh yes, he will! Never doubt it! The cross of Calvary is a standing pledge—standing until sin and guilt, need and woe, shall be known no more—that God, “who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all” will “with him also freely give us all things”—all things we need for our good, all things that promote his glory.
