Our Lord Receives Sinners: Spurgeon

This man [Jesus] receives sinners (Luke 15:2), but He does not push any away. We come to Him in weakness and sin, with trembling faith, small knowledge, and slender hope – but He does not cast us out. We come by prayer, and that prayer is broken. We come with confession, and that confession is faulty. We come with praise, and that praise is far short of His merits; yet He receives us. We come diseased, polluted, worn out, and worthless, but He will certainly not cast any of us out. Let us go again today to Him who never casts us out.’

-Charles Spurgeon, Faith’s Checkbook (January 13)
