Meditation
HE IS WAITING TO BE GRACIOUS Oh, poor sinner you have been running away from God, and, when at last the Holy Spirit lead you to fall before him, your sin makes you to feel you are all unworthy of the least favor or notice. Why should he look upon such a dead dog as I am? with wondrous love God lifts you up and says, There is a blood covenant between me and my Son. By that covenant I am bound to show the kindness of God to all for whom Jesus had died, and who come to me by him. I cannot turn you away if I would. You may feel all unworthy a place at the Kings table, but I will make you as one of the Kings sons, and you shall sit at my table forever. What absolute confidence is given to us by that invitation which says, Ho, everyone, and then points to the fifty third chapter as giving us all the fitness he requires! You see you do not need to be cure of your lame legs before he will show you kindness. We are ever putting the seventh verse before the sixth. We say, I will forsake my wicked ways, and give up my unrighteous thoughts, then seek the Lord. No, God says, Come to me first, and then you shall be strengthened to forsake your wicked ways. I put the sixth verse before the seventh. What avails it to a leper to cure a few of his sores when the fatal disease is sent out from the heart in the blood? Come, ye lepers, to the Son of man. Let his merciful touch make you clean. Wait not to rid your soul of one dark blot. --To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot, O, Lamb of God, I come, I come. Nor need you fear that you may be shut out because you are not of the elect. It is true that God chooses us and that we were chosen before the foundation of the world. Yet he has left us the power to choose whom we will serve. Paul does not hesitate to affirm the Saviours teaching that we owe our salvation to the sovereign electing love of God. Yet side by side with this great truth he presses our responsibility. In the ninth chapter of Romans he presents the great subject of predestination in such a way that it gives some, cold chills to read It.; yet he closes the subject in the last verse of Chapter ten, as God standing with outstretch hands of loving earnest entreaty, and saying, All day long I have stretched forth my hands. --- We only darken counsel with words when we attempt to explain how God is sovereign in his electing love, and yet has left us the power of choice.. While election shuts a great number in, we know it shuts none out. NOTE the words, All day long. J. Roseboro
