It Will Bring Glory to Him

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace… – Ephesians 1:7

Christ took the shame that He might magnify His Father, and now His Father delights to magnify Him by blotting out the sin. If there is anything under heaven. that would make Christ more illustrious the Father would not spare it for a moment. If thou seest that for thee to have thy sin forgiven would raise the fame of the Saviour, go and plead that argument with God, and thou shalt surely prevail. Will it not make Christ glad if He saves such a sinner as thou art? Then go with this argument in thy mouth, “Father, glorify Thy Son by exalting Him as a glorious Saviour in saving me.” I find this often a great lever at a dead lift,-to say unto the Lord, “Lord, Thou knowest the straits I am in; Thou knowest how undeserving I am; Thou knowest what a poor, undone creature I am before Thee; but if Thy dear Son shall help and save me the very angels will stand and wonder at His mighty grace, and so it will bring glory to Him, therefore I entreat Thee be gracious unto me.” Be sure thou art certain to prevail if thou canst plead that it will glorify Christ, and surely thou wouldest not wish to have a thing that would not glorify him. Thy prayer shall always be prevalent, if thy heart be in such a state that thou art willing to have or not to have, according as it will honour thy Lord: if it will not glorify Christ, be thou more than content to do without the choicest earthly good; but be thou doubly grateful when the boon that is granted tends to bring honour to the ever dear and worshipful name of Jesus. “For Christ’s sake.” It is a precious word; dwell upon it, and lay up this sentence in the archives of thy memory-the Father will do anything for the sake of Jesus Christ His Son. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
