Saves and forgives us for every wrong we have ever done, not because we are sorry, but out of His sheer mercy?
God’s forgiveness and His Salvation through His Son,is only natural in the supernatural domain.
Another rugged fact is the need for new birth.
”Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again,” that is, you must be invaded by the Spirit of God by means of a supernatural recreation.
The Essence of Our Salvation.
(Ephesians 4:13—1 6)
Man extremity elicits the central resources of God the Saviour.
Personality sometimes hinders the Gospel, people swept off
their feet,not by the truth presented but the tremendous force of the personality that presents it.
"Being born again of the Spirit is an unmistakable work of God, as mysterious as the wind."
Beware of the tendency to water down the supernatural in religion.
Personality is used by God to emphasise a neglected truth, but the Toms,Dicks and Harrys are the ones used to spread a knowledge
of salvation amongst men.
“He must increase, but I must decrease.
” That is the only standard for the preacher of the Gospel.
John the Baptist is stating the truth that we have no right preachers on the ground of our personality, but only because of the message we proclaim.
So many preach the human aspect of Christ,His sympathy for the bereaved and the suffering and sin-stained,and men listen whilst Christ is brought down to their conditions; but a preacher has to bring the Gospel of God
to men’s needs, and to do this he has to uncover their need and men resent this ”I don’t want to accept the verdict on myself that Jesus Christ brings;
I don’t believe I am so sinful as He reveals.”
Man never believes what Jesus Christ says about the human heart until the Holy Ghost gives him the startling revelation of the truth of His diagnosis (see Mark 7:20—23).
Paul was never appealed to fundamentally by the distresses of men,he was appealed to only by the Cross of Christ.
(see 1 Corinthians 2:2).
Only Jesus Saves!
There are any number of people who awaken sympathy for the conditions of men and speak of the tragedy of human life to the one who presents the tragedy of Redemption,a broken-hearted God.
As a preacher, never remember the conditions of men, remember only the rugged facts of our salvation, and never attempt to guard them.
(From Oswald Chambers famous writings.)
