Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 25th September

The Sacrifice Has Been Accepted

If the Lord had desired to kill us, he would not have received a burnt offering and a grain offering from our hands, nor would he have shown us all these things. (Judges 13:23)

This is a sort of promise deduced by logic. It was not likely that the Lord had revealed to Manoah and his wife that a son would be born to them, and yet had it in His heart to destroy them. Let us, too, follow this line of argument.

The Father has accepted the great sacrifice of Calvary and has declared Himself well pleased. The Lord has shown us our election, our adoption, our union to Christ, our marriage to the Well-beloved: how can He now destroy us?

The promises are loaded with blessings, which necessitate our being preserved unto eternal life. It is not possible for the Lord to cast us away and yet fulfill His covenant. The past assures us, and the future reassures us.
