Look Into His Heart

Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. – Titus 2:14

Oh, when I think of sin, I cannot understand how a sinner can be saved; but when I think of God, and look into His heart, I understand how readily He can forgive. “Look into His heart,” saith one; “how can we do that?” Hath He not laid bare His heart to you? Do you enquire where He has done this? I answer, yonder, upon Calvary’s cross. What was in the very center of the divine heart? What, but the person of the Well-beloved, His only begotten Son? …He spared not His Son, but He spares the sinner; He poured out His wrath upon His Son and made Him the substitute for sinners, that He might lavish love upon the guilty who deserved His anger. O soul, if thou art lost, it is not from any want of grace, or wisdom, or power in the Father; if thou perish, it is not because God is hard to move or unable to save. If thou be a castaway, it is not because the Eternal refused to hear thy cries for pardon or rejected thy faith in Him. On thine own head be thy blood, if thy soul be lost.

Jesus who came from heaven for our redemption was…very God of very God, in the beginning with the Father. And does such a One come to redeem? Is there room to doubt as to His ability, if that be the fact? I do confess this day, that if my sins were ten thousand times heavier than they are, yea, and if I had all the sins of this crowd in addition piled upon me, I could trust Jesus with them all at this moment now that I know Him to be the Christ of God. He is the mighty God, and by His pierced hand the burden of our sins is easily removed; He blotteth out our sins, He casts them into the depths of the sea. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
