CHARLES SPURGEON: Devotional




Evening – Day 32


Thy love to me was wonderful.”
2 Samuel 1:26

Come, dear friends, let each one of us speak for himself of the wonderful love, not of Jonathan, but of Jesus. We will not relate what we have been told, but the things which we have tasted and handled of the love of Christ.




Your love to me, O Jesus, was wonderful when I was a stranger wandering far from you, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind. Your love restrained me from committing the sin which is unto death, and withheld me from self destruction.  Your love held back the axe when Justice said, “Cut it down! why cumbereth it the ground?” 







Your love drew me into the wilderness, stripped me there, and made me feel the guilt of my sin, and the burden of my iniquity. Your love spake comfortably to me when, I was sore dismayed “Come unto me, and I will give you rest.” 





Oh, how matchless your love when, in a moment, you washed my sins away, and made my polluted soul, which was crimson with the blood of my nativity, and black with the grime of my transgressions, to be white as the driven snow, and pure as the finest wool. 





How you commended your love when you  whispered in my ears, “I am yours and you are mine.” Kind were those accents when you  said “The Father himself loves you.” And sweet the moment when you declared to me “the love of the Spirit.” Never shall my soul forget those chambers of fellowship where you had unveiled  yourself  to me. 


Precious Lord Jesus, give us a fresh draught of thy wondrous love to end the day with. Amen.
