"Looking unto Jesus" by Isaac Ambrose 1600'sI Tim. 1:14 "The grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant""Many an humble soul is apt enough to complain, "Oh! if I had not been so great a sinner, if I had not comitted such and such transgressions there might have been hope." This is to undervalue Christ's redemption; this is to think there is more in sin to damn, than in Christ's sufferings to save, whereas all thy sins to Christ are but as a little cloud to the glorious sun, yea, all the sins of all the men in the world, are but to Christ's merits as a drop to the ocean. I speak not this to encourage the presumptuos sinner, for alas, he hath no part in this satisfication, but to comfort the humbled sinner, who is loadened with a sense of his sins: what though they were a burden greater than he can bear, yet they are not a burden greater than Christ can bear?"O to be bring Christ into the center of everything of our lives!
O to be bring Christ into the center of everything of our lives!
