"Now we must either have the portion of the world, or Christ's portion."
"Let the strong bear the infirmity of the weak, and not please themselves."
"Having found Christ, we have found one who has all the promises of God."
"Where there is that trouble of conscience, love is not in exercise, but self is the centre."
"I have got away from grace if I have the slightest doubt or hesitation about God's love."
"It is a solemn truth, dear friends, that " if you have not the Spirit of Christ, you are none of his."
"Peace of soul is constantly hindered through our not recognising that God has taken full cognizance of what we are."
"Be not deceived. Christ says that, except a man be born again, he can neither see nor enter into the kingdom of God."
"The gospel is the revelation God has given of Himself; it displays the love of God towards us, and what is in His heart."

"If we look at the simple fact of what grace is, it has no limit, no bounds. Be we what we may (and we cannot be worse than we are), in spite of all that, what God is towards us is love! Neither our joy nor our peace is dependent on what we are to God, but on what He is to us, and this is grace."
"The Lord Jesus died for the ungodly. He was obedient at all costs : He bore everything, and went down into the dust of death, man's hatred, God's desertion, and Satan's power ; we find Him there at the cost of everything. Everything that was against us was done away. By one man's obedience many are made righteous."
"Grace supposes all the sin and evil that is in us, and is the blessed revelation that through Jesus all this sin and evil have been put away. A single sin is more horrible to God than a thousand sins-nay, than all the sins in the world-are to us ; and yet, with the fullest consciousness of what we are, all that God is pleased to be towards us is love!"
is one great truth made known to us by the Spirit, that Christ was sent
from the Father for the purpose, not only of saving sinners, of saving
" the ungodly," but of bringing th in into His Father's house, and unto
the eternal favour of God-into the very blessedness with Himself in the
Father's love-" joint-heirs " with Himself in the glory, and like Him."
"Christ took all this upon Himself. He charged Himself with responsibility, instead of putting man under it. He underwent, to the full, the last effect of sin, as the result of the wrath of God, and of the power of Satan, as well as of the weakness of man. He bore the curse. He went down into the grave. But He was still the " holy One," and (though He might imputatively take sin) it was not possible that He could be holden of the cords of death. Therefore He rose again head of a new family of men, a new world, a new creation, heir, according to the purposes of God, of all the promises, and heir for ever."
