The Object Of Our Faith
Is thy faith fixed on the precious blood? Then thou art in the covenant. Canst thou read thy name in the bloody characters of a Savior’s atonement, who says to all “Come unto me?” Then shalt thou read it one day in the golden letters of the Father’s election.
He that believeth is elected. The blood is the symbol, the token, the earnest, the surety, the seal of the covenant of grace to thee. By this blood, sin is cancelled; by Jesus’ agonies, justice is satisfied; by His death, the law is honored; and by that blood in all its mediatorial efficacy, and in all its cleansing power, Christ fulfills all that He stipulated to do on the behalf of His people towards God.—SPURGEON.
