Trust Altogether to the Blood and Merits of Jesus Christ

For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed. – Romans 10:11

“Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed.” “Whosoever.” Whatever man in all the world, throughout all the ages, shall come and trust on Christ shall never be ashamed of having done so…You know what Cardinal Bellarmine said: he was a great antagonist of Luther, and thought that we might trust in our works; but, looking it all over, he admitted that inasmuch as no man could be quite sure that he had done enough good works, it was perhaps best on the whole and safest to trust altogether to the blood and merits of Jesus Christ…There is really no other hope, for if you get a little bit of your own works put into the building, of your hope, you have just so much rotten timber in the fabric, and that rot will plague the whole house, and turn it into dust at the last. No man that rested in Christ, and Christ alone, ever was ashamed of his hope; and none ever shall be. There is sure ground here. The Rock of Ages never fails.

No man is forbidden to believe; “for there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him.” There never was a sinner yet to whom God said, “You must not trust My Son”: on the contrary, it is written, “Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.” …Read this verse, “All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.” Whoever will in the whole world believe in Christ may do so; he is neither too old or too young, or too rich, or too poor, or too wicked, or too moral; if he will but trust Christ he shall be saved, and he is fully allowed and permitted, yea, commanded to believe and live. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
