Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 7th September

The Reach of Almighty Grace

It shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, “Ye are not my people”, there it shall be said unto them, “Ye are the sons of the living God”. (Hosea 1:10)

Sovereign grace can make strangers into sons, and the Lord here declares His purpose to deal thus with rebels. Let us join hands and hearts in praising Him.

Some of us were so decidedly ungodly that the Lord’s Word said to our conscience and heart, “Ye are not my people.” Truly a sad, condemning voice it was.

But now, in the same places from the same ministry and Scripture, we hear a voice saying, “Ye are the sons of the living God.” Does it not give us hope for others? Who is beyond the reach of almighty grace? How can we despair of any, since the Lord has wrought so marvelous a change in us?

He who has kept this one great promise will keep every other; wherefore, let us go forward with songs of adoration and confidence.
