Does your faith have a tear in its eye? It should! Today’s devotional will explain why. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Mark 1:15 (ESV)and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”
“I do not believe in that faith which has not a tear in its eye when it looks to Jesus…. With our joy over pardoned guilt, we must mourn that we pierced the Lord. We think of our past sins; perhaps some of them were very black ones; and as they come up before our recollection, we wish that they could be blotted out of all remembrance. We mourn over the many times in which we resisted the Spirit of God, and rejected the Savior; and while we know that all these sins are now forgiven, we cannot help being grieved because of them” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLVII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1901), p. 232-233]
